Lynn Connor Summer will be honored February 10 at the Annual Brookland-Cayce High School Education Foundation Hall of Fame Gala. The event will be held at Seawell’s in Columbia.
Summer, fondly known as the “BC Diva,” worked at Brookland-Cayce High School for more than two decades before her retirement in 2019.

She loved to remind students, “You are unique and valuable, therefore, you must act unique and valuable.”
The February 10 event will begin at 6 p.m. with a social hour, followed by the induction ceremony at 7. Tickets are $30 per person, $350 for a corporate-sponsored table and may be purchased on the foundation’s website, https://bchsfoundation.org/. Seawell’s is at 1125 Rosewood Drive.
