Sue Raymond is a retired physical education teacher from Rush-Henrietta.  Sue joined ONYA when she learned about ONYA’s mission.   Having been involved with girls with low self-esteem and troubled lives, she felt that it was important to support programs that provided an escape from such situations which ONYA’s grants do.  Sue feels very fortunate that she came from a loving, supportive family where she was the oldest of seven children. While things weren’t always easy for her family, Sue learned what caring and support can accomplish and felt that by being part of ONYA she could help change the lives of girls and women in the area.

Term:  2024-2026

Susan Miltsch, Vice President

Term:  2023-2026

Susan Miltsch has been volunteering her time since she was 11 years old when she volunteered at a skilled nursing facility in her neighborhood filling and delivering water pitchers. Moving onto Girl Scouts, she was involved with achieving badges and selling cookies! She loved being able to earn prizes for the number of cookie boxes sold, she was the Highest Seller one year in the 80’s for the Central PA Region with something like 2500 boxes! "I definitely won all the prizes!

(I also had to deliver all those cookies😵‍💫)"


She has continued throughout her life being the “helper”. In college as part of her national fraternity for women Alpha Xi Delta, Susan continued to volunteer for their causes as well as hold several offices on the Executive Board, (Vice President, Recording Secretary, Historian), she was the House Food Steward, the House Chef (cooking daily for 60+ sisters) and also the Recording Secretary for National Panhellenic Council during her college days. 


Moving into life after college, Susan volunteered as a substitute Montessori Teacher, while also holding a full-time evening Social Work position at Rochester General Hospital (RGH).   While at RGH, she co-chaired the ED Holiday Project for 8+ years adopting up to ten families a season! Susan worked in Child Psychiatry and finished her career in Chronic Dialysis, retiring from healthcare in 2007.


As Susan's children entered school she volunteered as the “Room Mom” for many years coordinating all activities within the school year. 


Now that Susan's children are grown, she has filled her time with getting a charcuterie catering business [BOARD at the lake] off the ground, but it was also time to find other activities where her skill set could be utilized.  Having a background in Women’s Studies from Syracuse University, where she worked full-time in a Women’s Health Clinic while achieving her Masters Degree, ONYA seemed like a good fit given it's Mission Statement!
