The Smyth County Educational Foundation has been operating for over 30 years. Initially, the Foundation worked collaboratively with industry and trade in the Smyth County area. As the times have passed and education sector has continued to evolve, so has the Foundation. We strive to assist and collaborate with Smyth County Schools, as the pillar of education for our county. We no longer focus on industry and trade alone, but in the overall educational experience by all of the county students, teachers, parents, and community members. Therefore, the Foundation is moving in a new direction.
I joined the Smyth County Educational Foundation in July 2018 as the Executive Director. It is our vision to follow the world of technology by designing a foundation website; creating social media accounts for you to follow, like, and join; host family-oriented fundraising opportunities; and work side-by-side with local educators and members of the community to help guide our youth to a bright future.
Please take a moment and look around. This website is still in the making, as education is forever evolving and changing. Feel fee to contact us using the “Contact” tab above. Get to know the history and mission of the Foundation, as well as those on the Board of Directors. News and Upcoming Events will also be posted for your reference and future participation. We hope to see you soon!
