Susan Davis Summer is Newberry born, Newberry bred--and when she dies, she'll be Newberry dead (ie, buried in Rosemont)!
attended Newberry County public schools
(NHS, '70) and had the great, good fortune to be in English classes taught by Mrs. Marty Mathis and Mrs. Dot Epting.
From them, she
learned much about grammar and good humor, and from NHS band director, Miss Lorraine Paris, she
learned much about diligence and the importance of being prompt.
and her husband, Henry ("a lawyer/county councilman/financial planner/and all-around nice guy!") have three "grown-up and wonderfully entertaining children": Walter Munson, Janie, and Buffy.
In addition to her
success as a writer (selected by "The State" newspaper as one of its first community columnists and two-time winner of the SC Fiction Project), Sue
has co-hosted the Thursday morning "Coffee Hour" on WKDK
for several years.
During June Dairy Month, Sue
and Andy Hawkins pulled off the first-ever cheese carve-off of Newberry landmarks and "hysterical sites!
once actually made an Easter basket "on-the-air" and on the 80th birthday of legendary fiddler, Pappy Sherrill, Sue
helped host a birthday party for him at the station with "Aunt Polly's Cold Oven Pound Cake.
