Doug Smith Memorial 


Doug was a valued volunteer on the Lifeschool Board of Directors for one year before his untimely death in 2005. As an outdoorsman and community member dedicated to improving the lives of kids, Doug Smith put his all into helping more youth get out into nature. He brightened up board meetings with his warm, humorous and intelligent persona. He selflessly helped to coordinate multiple fundraisers, benefit concerts and community events with one goal in mind, the kids. Doug was truly a generous, giving and community minded man and is greatly missed on our Board.


In his honor, Doug’s family created an endowment which supports the charities that meant the most to him and Lifeschool is amongst them. I can think of no better way to celebrate the life and passions of Doug Smith than to contribute to the youth, the next generation of musicians, artists and community members in his name. As a result of his family's generosity, Lifeschool has had the Doug Smith Scholarship Fund which has helped many children and youth in need afford the tuition costs associated with attending Lifeschool. Any donation in Doug’s name will ensure that local youth continue to get the opportunity to experience Lifeschool.

The Doug Smith Scholarship Fund has currently raised: $15,000
