2022 RECIPIENT - Helping Hand Me Downs

JULY 21, 2022


Susan E. Shepherd’s “I can do” spirit was the basis for her successes throughout her life. During her golf career she was a member of STLWDGA, a club champion, and had a single digit handicap. Her successful business career began at the age of 50 when she was widowed. She was chosen as Missouri’s top woman broker in 1980, and became Vice President of sales at Stifel, Nicolaus and Co. Inc. The company called her their “First Lady,” saying she set a high standard for all women to follow.


As part of her legacy, she authorized the creation of the Shepherd Foundation. The Shepherd Foundation and the Missouri Women’s Golf Education Association, Inc. created the Susan E. Shepherd Memorial Scholarship which is awarded each year to a female junior athlete entering college.


Mr. Charles M. M. Shepherd, son and President of the Foundation, and STLWDGA formed the idea of our SES event, honoring a different charity annually. Our first SES event was in 2003 at Old Warson Country Club.


Each year suggestions are solicited from our membership for charities supporting women and children and are then voted on by the Executive Board. Donations to the chosen charity are very welcome but strictly voluntary from our members.


Helping Hand Me Downs will be the recipient of her generosity this year as we play at The Legends Country Club on Thursday July 21. We look forward to seeing many of you as we honor Mrs. Shepherd’s memory.
