Hyde Park family restores 19th century doors
The family of John Lame of Hyde Park gathered at The Summit for a blessing of two sets of side doors in the narthex of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel.
The family donated funds to restore the doors, which had been in place since the chapel opened in 1895. Designed in gothic revival style by notable 19th century Philadelphia architect Edward F. Durang, the new doors are exact replicas of the original doors. The original stained glass was inserted into the new doors.

The restoration project honored John’s mother, Summit lifer Madeleine “Pudy” (Kroger) Lame, a 1946 Summit graduate; her sister, Anne (Kroger) Lambert, class of 1936; and their mother, Theresa (Finn) Kroger, who in 1907 was one of the earliest graduates of the Hyde Park school.
“We are grateful for Summit families who enroll generation after generation in our school,” says Rich Wilson, Head of School. “The families cherish this landmark building, and especially the chapel. My thanks to John Lame for asking us what he could do to help the school and at the same time honor his mom, aunt and grandmother.”
Fr. Philip O. Seher, former chaplain of The Summit, blessed the doors and the family. After the dedication, the family celebrated Pudy’s 90th birthday at the Cincinnati Country Club.

Eighth grader selected for OMEA Honor Band
Summit Eighth grader Irene Calderon of Hyde Park is the new third chair flutist for the Ohio Music Education Association’s (OMEA) Honor Band.
Irene underwent the OMEA’s audition process to earn her seat by competing against flutists from across the Greater Cincinnati area. To be invited to audition, she had to be nominated by The Summit’s Middle School band director and teacher Robert Browning. Theaudition required her to play one scale from memory, a selection of provided music and sight read a short excerpt.
Early in the year Irene spent much of her time rehearsing with her fellow band members. The program culminated with a performance at Princeton High School.

Irene, while a member of The Summit’s band, is also a member of the Jr. Cincinnati Youth Wind Ensemble (Jr. CYWE). The group, comprised of the top young musicians in the Cincinnati area in grades six through eight, must commit to ensemble practices once a week and two full-band concerts. During rehearsals, musicians in the ensemble work with student interns in the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music’s (CCM) Music Education Division for additional instruction.
