Notice about David Summergrad


Dear Summer Ink Community, 


It is with enormous sadness that we share the news that David Summergrad, one of our long-time board members, passed away on September 24, 2020. For over twenty-five years, David championed our mission of empowering young people to claim and share their unique voice through writing. He brought a tremendous energy and enthusiasm to our organization and he supported our work in so many important ways. David was also a tireless champion of equality and access for all, two passions that were well matched by his joy and enthusiasm for education. David was a teacher, professor, administrator, mentor, volunteer and role model. He leaves a tremendous legacy and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to his wife, Mary Grace, and his two daughters, Anna and Lisa, during this difficult time.



Arthur Unobskey

Board President


Rosamund Conroy

Executive Director
