Summit Educational Foundation (SEF) President Irene Murdock and Summit Mayor Nora Radest flank Summit High School English Department Supervisor Corey Walsh, recipient of the 2017 Nora Radest Award for Excellence in Education. The Award, given to a teacher or administrator who has submitted grants through the SEF process and, in so doing, has greatly enriched the classroom environment and served as a role model to others in the district, was named to honor Radest -- SEF past President and board member -- whose vision for and dedication to the Foundation spanned many years.
 
Walsh has served on the SEF Grants committee, helping the committee better understand the grants from a faculty perspective. His link on the Forensics Debate Coach grant, which funded an additional debate coach, has been an accelerant for the rapidly-expanding Forensics program. Walsh -- who served on the SEF Board as a teacher representative -- also submitted his own grants, including those for Quintessence to ensure the Kent Place Boulevard campus would have a published literary magazine.
