Suzanne and Doyle Powell on helping children & young adults follow their dreams
Aug 25, 2017
Married for nearly 47 years, Suzanne and Doyle Powell have built a lifetime of memories together. They met in Long Beach when Doyle, a recent civil engineering graduate of the University of Missouri at Rolla, moved to Long Beach to take on his first job. Suzanne, a California native, had earned her degree at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and was working as an elementary teacher. In the years that followed, they would live in a number of California cities—wherever Doyle’s jobs took him. In time he would form his own company, Powell Constructors, Inc. Then in 2007, they would come full circle by relocating in Long Beach. . . .
For her daughter to be part of Assisteens, Suzanne would need to be a member of the chapter, and so she joined in 1989. She went on to serve in many positions, including Assisteens Coordinator and eventually President-Elect and President.
