  1. 2016 Alice J. Smith Service Award

    The Smith Awards were established in 1995 by Joseph Smith as a memorial to his wife Alice. He wanted to honor her career in teaching and love for learning, and wanted Clayton State University to be part of her legacy. The awards are presented annually to the most outstanding faculty and staff members, who are nominated by their peers.
