Someone You Should Know: Sue Krug

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW)-- A local business woman returns to her first passion: kids. It makes Sue Krug 'Someone You Should Know.

Sue Krug loves being around kids.

"They are like little rough stones that you just want to polish," said Sue Krug.

For the past 4 and a half years, Krug has volunteered with Child Development Incorporated on Madison's south side. CDI is a non-profit learning center for infants to pre-school aged children. The organization has served kids and their families for more than 40 years.

"Our mission is to enhance and provide education to children who are disadvantaged so they can excel in their development," said Sue.

While she spends most of her time on fund raising and recruitment as the President of CDI's board, Krug soaks up any time she can one-on-one with the kids.

"It's the light in their eyes that you see that brings it all together and makes that satisfaction even more apparent," said Sue.

Krug knows what it takes to connect with children. She spent 10-years as an elementary and special education teacher before moving back to Wisconsin and opening Ancora Coffee with her husband in 1994.

"I have always wanted to be a kid," said Sue. "I don't want to grow up and I never thought I should, but you do and this is a way to go back to that world of being an innocent child and seeing things with new eyes," said Sue.

"I'm thoroughly convinced that her leadership has kept the organization going over the last three years," said Erica.

Erica Kauten, a fellow board member, has seen first-hand what Krug does for CDI.

"She never gets discouraged," said Erica Kauten, fellow board member. "She always sees the positive way of who we are going to continue to grow." It's really through her enthusiasm and her inspiration that I think the board stays as engaged as they have been."

Krug says seeing the kids helps her keep perspective on the business-side of what she does for CDI.

"Every child is an opportunity to help grow into a young adult that's productive and successful and feels good about themselves," said Sue.
