Shiawassee County Circuit Court Chief Judge Ward Clarkson announced Friday that longtime Friend of the Court Director, Susan L. Thorman has resigned her position.
“Mrs. Thorman’s thirteen years of dedication to the children and families of Shiawassee County is appreciated,” said Judge Clarkson. “This is just one of the many changes taking place in the Circuit and Family Courts since Judge Matt Stewart took office this year.”
Mrs. Thorman was appointed by the Honorable Gerald D. Lostracco in 2002. Under her leadership the Friend of the Court office converted to the Federally mandated MICSES system, completely renovated their offices in the historic Shiawassee County Courthouse and implemented many improvements to their customer service model.
During her tenure she was the statewide Friend of the Court Association Vice-President and President, Shiawassee County Bar Association President and Boss of the Year (2003). “I am looking forward to a new chapter in my life,” said Thorman.
Interviews for Mrs. Thorman’s replacement are underway.
