Summit DD Renames Barberton Center in Honor of Russ Pry

Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board, or Summit DD, passed a resolution at the August 25 board meeting renaming its property located at 501 West Hopocan Avenue, Barberton, Ohio the “Russ Pry Barberton Center.”

The motion was introduced by former Board President Randy Briggs.  “The Board lost a very good friend, County Executive Russ Pry,” Briggs stated as he spoke about Russ Pry’s support and involvement with Summit DD. “I am proposing that we rename the Barberton center the Russ Pry Barberton Center as a very fitting tribute,” continued Briggs

The resolution recognized that Mr. Pry dedicated his entire career as a public servant to improving the lives of those most in need in our community.

“Under Mr. Pry’s leadership, collaboration with community partners, innovation, diversity, equity and inclusion were values he lived by in serving the people of Summit County,” stated Summit DD Superintendent John Trunk.
