JoyAnna (McBride) Melton, known to her listeners as radio personality Joy Summers at WAY-FM and Cedarville University’s 2017 Young Alumna of the Year, will speak in chapel at Cedarville University on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018.

Summers graduated from Cedarville University in 2010 and was hired immediately by WAY-FM as a local morning show co-host and production assistant. Eight years later, she still works for the radio station and has been moved to a prime-time afternoon show. In 2017, she was named one of the station’s employees of the year.

Aside from her career, Summers has taken two international missions trips with Shoes for Orphans Souls and takes an annual Vision Trip with Compassion International to see their work overseas.

Summers and her husband, Hunter Melton, live in Franklin, Tennessee.
