SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Principals’ Association, in conjunction with the Summit educational community, in 2016 launched the 'Illuminating HEARTS4HOPE' campaign to benefit the family of Carol Hassert.

Hassert was the Summit High School principal’s secretary, who tragically lost her battle with cancer in March, 2016.  This campaign will be conducted on an annual basis, providing hope to individuals and families in the Summit educational community who are experiencing challenges that are not supported through traditional resources.

'Illuminating HEARTS4HOPE' is a luminary campaign that will run through February 14. Luminary kits will be sold for $20 each via an order form which may be returned to any school office.

Each kit includes 15 candles and luminary bags, which can be picked up at Wilson Primary Center on February 10, 13, or 14 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The campaign will conclude with luminaries being lit, in front of participants’ homes and throughout the community, the evening of February 14.  

Those interested in this initiative, but living outside of Summit, are encouraged to participate by purchasing luminary kits and lighting them at dusk on February 14, illuminating hope throughout the area.

For questions, contact Janice Tierney at jtierney@summit.k12.nj.us.
