Summer, fondly known as the “BC Diva,” worked at Brookland-Cayce High School for more than two decades before her retirement in 2019. She was a health teacher and Teacher Cadet instructor at the time of her retirement, but she served in a number of other roles through the years at Brookland-Cayce High and elsewhere, among them substitute teacher, PE teacher, science lab technician, gymnastics and swim coach, and Brookland-Cayce cheerleading coach. She loved to remind students, “You are unique and valuable, therefore, you must act unique and valuable.”
