We're going vintage on this edition of RPD of the Week after a brief hiatus. This week's power dancer is Susie Boudwin, who was an RPD member for six years before becoming the coach of the power dancers as well as the "In-Arena Host." For those of you that attend Rockets games, you may know her as "Sweet" Susie, as so delicately introduced by the great John Paul Stevenson.
Susie isn't just a dancer and entertainer; she's also really smart. From NBA.com:
Susie is a magna cum laude graduate of Texas A&M University, where she received her bachelors and masters degrees in Accounting, was a Gathright Award winner, a member of the University Honors Program, and the Professional Program in Accounting (PPA).
That's some mind-numbing stuff right there. So is this:
Fun Fact: Susie is married to Clutch, the Rockets mascot. No joke, how strangely perfect is that combination? And what a victory for Clutch!
