Happy New Year! It’s so exciting to welcome in 2023, the year of our Silver Jubilee, when the Smith School will recognize the 25th anniversary of our naming. We will induct the inaugural class into our Hall of Fame on April 27, and hold a banquet to celebrate the life and legacy of Robert H. Smith and reflect on the impact of his philanthropic investment in the school on October 27. Other events and activities throughout the year will highlight our points of pride and advance the school’s strategic priorities in order to further the legacy of Robert H. Smith and continue his path to elevate the school to the next level.
