Sue Wilson Stafford was a longtime Frisco ISD teacher and advocate for those in need. She was born in Madill, Oklahoma, in 1946 and died at her Frisco home on May 24, 2017, shortly after her retirement. She graduated from Madill High and Southeastern Oklahoma State University. She began teaching in 1969 in Oklahoma and moved to Frisco ISD in 1979.
She taught at the elementary, middle school and high school levels and served as the district’s Migrant Education Coordinator from 1983-94. At the time of her retirement, she taught students at the alternative program for middle school students and also taught English as a Second Language and GED preparation classes to adults in the evenings. Her work with students always extended outside the classroom and she worked countless hours for Frisco’s youth over the years.
She served on the Frisco Housing Authority Board of Commissioners and the YMCA Board of Directors and she and longtime civil servant Gary Burns founded the Frisco Children’s Fund to assist Frisco families in need for over 20 years. A scholarship fund in her honor through the Frisco Education Foundation provides college money for FISD seniors. Sue’s commitment to others garnered her Frisco’s Chamber of Commerce Golden Eagle Award in 1990 and the 1998 Citizen of the Year Award. She was also a lifetime member of the PTA.
Sue’s legacy lives on in her children and through the successes of other young people she advised and assisted over the years. Stafford is remembered as one of the community’s greatest advocates for Frisco ISD and its students.
