Bulldogs Making a Difference
From an early age, Wilburn Smith was taught the importance of a college degree. His parents advocated education because “they knew it was an important factor in life… college is a must in our family,” said Smith. However, he was not unaware of the problems that existed, and still exist, for many school-aged children.
“I was a very young child when I realized issues surrounding education needed to be addressed,” says Smith.
