Summit Events 2018-19
Pat's Retirement Party
Summit hosted a retirement party for longtime beloved teacher Pat Akers at the school on May 21. Pat has been with Summit since its inception in 1998, having taught previously at McLeod Academy and Linn Academy. She has also tutored many local students over the years. "What an amazing gathering with my students, their parents, colleagues, and even a few grandparents! It was wonderful to connect with so many of you if only for a few moments. I appreciate your precious words, thoughtful cards, generous gifts, and retirement congratulations. It has been a privilege to work with young people in the classroom and one-on-one tutoring over these thirty years. I wholeheartedly thank you and extend you all my best!" - Pat Akers
