Received “Unsung Hero” Inspiration Award
The Emory School of Law Public Interest Committee (EPIC) gave its 2007 “Unsung Hero” Inspiration Award to Susan H. Colussy, program director for immigration services for Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, Inc. The award was presented Feb. 13, during the group’s annual award celebration.
Colussy has served Catholic Charities for 21 dedicated years. Her passion for practicing immigration law is inspired by the needs of the unfortunate in society who are unheard, helpless foreign children sold into modern-day slavery, victims of torture and trafficking, and vulnerable individuals in need of protection. A true champion of justice and defender of equal rights, Colussy is an example to aspiring graduate students at Emory School of Law and has thus been honored with this year’s inspiration award.
