BRECKENRIDGE – One night each year, Summit County’s educators stand at the front of the room not to work through algebra problems or history timelines, but to hear to the applause of community leaders and peers cheering their hard work and accomplishments.

Summit Education Celebration honors the outstanding teachers, administrators, parents and support staff who keep Summit County learning.

The annual event, which took place last week at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, is a project of the Business-Education Alliance, a local nonprofit comprised of educators, business people, parents, students and community leaders.
