Ann D. Smith

Ann D. Smith Ann D. Smith, a longtime supporter of Kennesaw State University,  recently retired from nearly 20 years of service as a professor and administrator in the Bagwell College of Education. Upon retirement, Smith was inspired by her experiences at KSU to endow the Ann D. Smith Scholarship with the assistance of the Bagwell College of Education. The scholarship provides financial assistance to qualifying students in need who are pursuing a degree in the field of education. On top of the endowment, she has also bequeathed an additional $20,000 to fund the scholarship in perpetuity.

Smith has often stated that were it not for the scholarship awarded to her as an undergraduate, she would not have been able to afford a college education. Inspired by donors’ generosity, she now seeks to grant other students the same opportunity.
