‘Fires’ was inappropriate word

This letter is in response to the front page headline on Wednesday, June 7, reading: “Summit Foundation fires director.” When I read the headline, I immediately felt a sense of bewilderment and negativity. I thought, “Oh no, what did Deb Edwards do? Continuing down the page, I was relieved to find a positive message concerning the leadership of Deb Edwards.While I am shocked to find out that Deb Edwards will no longer be directing the Summit Foundation, I am angry that such a headline presented the public with the news. I feel that the use of such a negative headline is unfair and disrespectful to Deb Edwards. There are many more appropriate ways to title the piece without the initial negativity: “New director sought to lead Summit Foundation” or “Deb Edwards to leave Summit Foundation after 22 years.” I am extremely disappointed that the headline using the word “fires” was used to represent Deb Edwards and her leadership.
