As Summerbridge launches its new website, Facebook page and twitter account, it may be time to reflect on how we have arrived here. For the last 20+ years, Carrie Peterson, the former Executive Director, led the organization with passion, fortitude, and dedication. She kept the doors open many years with sheer determination and her unwavering desire to make a difference in children’s lives. She has changed hundreds of lives, many of who visit and update her on their educational paths. As Summerbridge forges into the future, her legacy of teaching students about character, compassion, honesty and civility will remain the foundation of this organization.
