The Summit wins international gold award for new website


The Summit Country Day School has won a gold dotComm Award for web creativity and digital communication in the education category.

The Summit’s eight-month site rebuild, which began in August 2019, was spearheaded by Communications Director Nancy Berlier. She worked with Finalsite, a leading educational website design company, in creating a custom-designed site that highlights unique aspects of The Summit’s rigorous academics, faith formation, highly-trained faculty, signature programs and competitive athletics. The site features interactive graphics, extensive visual displays that include drone videography, a streaming video guide and a COVID-19 Update Center. 

Mrs. Berlier’s core team included Communications Specialist Nick Robbe, Communications Marketing Strategist Lisa Cox, former videography intern Katie Nichols, freelance contractor Leo Asong, Technology Director Holly Northern and Kathy Penote, a freelance graphic designer and 1993 alumna of the school. The Communications office also worked with faculty and staff across all school divisions to update content on the new site.

The dotComm Awards are an international competition that honors excellence in web creativity and digital communications. The competition is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.
