About the Speakers:

Elizabeth Smith, Ed.D.

After graduating from Jacksonville State University in her home state of Alabama, Smith’s educational career began in 1980 as the Kindergarten teacher at Pine Log Elementary School. In 2009, she retired as Principal of Calhoun Primary School in the Calhoun City School System. In between, she had the opportunity to serve as a second grade teacher at Mission Road Elementary, a school counselor at Taylorsville Elementary, and a program specialist at the State Department of Education in Atlanta.

After retiring from education, Smith joined the Sans Souci Women’s Club in Adairsville, and was part of the collaboration between the City of Adairsville, the Sans Souci Women’s Club, and Kennesaw State University Public History Department. The collaboration resulted in the restructured and reorganized Adairsville History Museum at the historic Depot in downtown Adairsville.

Smith and her husband Gary and lived in Adairsville for 19 years, but recently moved back to Cartersville to be closer to family. Smith and her husband are enjoying retirement and watching 8 grandchildren, ages 2-19, grow up way too fast!
