ASC Staff


Lake Summar – ASC Office Manager


Lake Summar was born and raised in the middle Tennessee area. Lake earned her business degree at MTSU in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management. Ms. Summar says that it has always been her lifelong goal to work for a non profit that serves a larger cause. This is why she has found a home with the ASC staff.

Lake says that in the time she has been with ASC, volunteering and now as an employee, the families and children have made more of an impact on her heart than she could ever hope to have on them. But, her hope is to continue to serve the families that have lost their heroes.

“Giving back to our ASC families is the least I can do, and I desire to do and be more for them, they deserve it”


Anna Partlow – Administrative Assistant


Anna Partlow was born and raised in the Middle TN area. With a dream of working with military personnel and their families through Equine Assisted Therapy, she has always enjoyed partnering with non-profits to serve those around her. A recent graduate of MTSU, Anna first interacted with ASC through Deer Run Camps & Retreats when she helped facilitate the 2016 Journey Camp. She promptly fell in love with the kids and the mission of ASC. As she pursues her Master’s degree, she is excited to work for an organization so focused on loving the family members of our country’s fallen heroes.
