It's About Community: Jack Smith

Jack Smith (Community Member)

There is a tight bond between the community and the schools, with so much community support from some many different community members. People like Jack Smith make it possible to provide the utmost in quality education for our Scholars of Today. Jack has lived in five states and settled in the school district when his children were young. As his children got older, he got active in different groups, such as the Booster, levy committees and Kiwanis, which became the avenue for everything he believed in and wanted to get involved in. Jack started a district-community mentoring program with Mariemont City Schools, bringing community and business leaders into the district to interact with the students. He also meets with sixth-grade students to talk about Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teenagers, a program he tweaked from something similar he presented when he worked at P&G. Jack also spends time with the third-grade class through the Winners Walk Tall program, where they discuss setting goals, helping others and being a leader. Jack also enjoys the school-community activities, such as the holiday parades and the bonfire before the big Indian Hill football game each year.

“This community has offered me a unique opportunity to get involved with the school and live out my passions and interests. Our community is unique because of our schools and our schools are unique because of the community. The community is composed of open yards and open doors with neighbors who help and care. The good things are there and all of this stems from the schools. The school district is big enough in that we have all of the things we hope for academically and it’s small enough that students can do whatever they would like to do. It’s a wonderful environment that allows students to be whatever they would like to be. There is more to education than just academics, it’s about being a leader and this district is preparing the students to be leaders. Our children receive a private school education in a public school setting.”
