“Santa and Mrs. Claus Educator”
1957 – Current
International Santa Claus Hall of Fame – December 2019
Susen Mesco has spent decades donning the unmistakable suit of Mrs. Claus, teaching and bestowing knowledge upon multiple generations of aspiring Santas and Mrs. Claus at the Professional Santa Claus School in Denver, Colorado.
Founded in 1983, her school today is the second oldest Santa Claus School in North America. The School has grown and been recognized by the international media from Cape Town South Africa, Korea, Italy, Great Britain and of course the USA. Numerous documentaries about the Santa industry have included her School. But more than that, the graduates have achieved success using her many innovative and unique ideas. Her motto is simple: “Santa is about the children, not the money, it is about the magical experience Santa gives his audience, Santa starts in the heart, not the suit or the beard and it all comes together once you learn to think like Santa Claus!”
