Jennifer Summers Barrett epitomized a strong, dedicated Junior League woman who cared deeply about her community and especially our children.  She understood the importance of literacy for youth and established the Talk, Play, Read program, connecting Junior League of Annapolis, Inc. with underprivileged neighborhoods.

 

Jenn’s Talk, Play, Read program offered members the opportunity to read to the children from these neighborhoods and encourage ways to continue reading at home, establishing a lasting love of reading and books. Jenn knew that this could be a gateway to a better life for these families.  She reminded us all that these amazing children are our future and it is equally important to take care of them, just as we would our own children.

 

Jenn tragically passed away on July 27, 2011 from a bacterial infection.  She was the biggest supporter of the Junior League’s annual Volunteers on the Run 5k fun run event. In memory of her support and her efforts as a member of our organization and community. The Jennifer Summers Barrett Volunteers on the Run 5K serves as a reminder to us all of Jenn, her legacy, and her hard work in our community and the importance of caring for our children.
