The Debra D. Smith Foundation was created to continue her legacy of motivation and love through community outreach and an annual scholarship.

One of the goals of the Debra D. Smith Scholarship Foundation is to provide graduating seniors, who have exemplified excellence through education and community service, with financial assistance toward various types of higher learning. It is important to support our children in whatever path they may take in life, whether that be a 2 or 4-year university or a vocational/technical program. Our vision is to create a community where all children know that the continued attainment of education is critical and within their grasp, regardless of financial ability. 

In the inaugural year of this foundation, our goal is to provide AT MIMIMUM four (4) graduating seniors with $1000 scholarships—but that can’t happen without you. You can play your part in creating our first class of Debra D. Smith scholars by donating.
