Van Summerill

The last two months I have had the opportunity to create several short stories on individuals being honored at Weber State University's 2014 Spring Commencement. One of those individuals was Van Summerill, whom the University awarded an Honorary Doctor of Humanities Degree.

Van worked at the University for forty years, but is better known for his involvement in the restoration of Peery's Egyptian Theater, one of Ogden Utah's architectural treasures.

Here is Van's award video, plus a few photos of his years working at the Egyptian.
