Back to City Council
Susie Magwood-Thomas was born and raised in Moultrie/Colquitt County and attended school here until the 10th grade. She moved to Miami with her mother and eight brothers and sisters, and graduated from Miami Northwestern High School.
After completing high school, Susie returned to South Georgia to further her education. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Albany State University and went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Education.
Susie returned to Miami to pursue her career in teaching before she accepted a position with Southern Bell and moved with the company to Atlanta. After retirement from Southern Bell, she opened several child care facilities. Susie was also an instructor for Save the Children, an early child care institute, and developed courses for the University of Georgia.
Susie returned to Moultrie in 2006 to be near her mother. Wanting to make a difference in the community she loves, Susie was motivated to run for City Council.
