FARMER’S KORNER – A gymnasium packed with Summit High School students, teachers and parents cheered as Summit County Commissioner Bob French declared Feb. 23, 2006 – today – “Tiger Pride Day” during a school assembly Wednesday.

The special assembly was held to present state championship trophies to Summit High’s speech and debate team, Nordic and alpine ski teams, as well as to honor individual student achievements in music, art and business.

Tiger Pride Day, officially proclaimed in a resolution adopted by the Board of County Commissioners, will be observed throughout the county today by wearing green and white and brandishing Summit High flags.

Summit High principal Jim Hesse and athletics and activities director Gretchen Nies presided while a panel of local luminaries, including former Olympians Jake Fiala and Matt Dayton, handed out the awards. Waves of applause issued from the bleachers as student after student was honored.

School superintendent Millie Hamner noted the remarkable success of her district’s high school students.

“It’s wonderful, especially considering the size of the school,” she said.
