The Smith Scholarship Foundation is designed to fund college scholarships for deserving students throughout Alabama. The foundation was created by Mignon C. Smith in honor of her parents. Her father, J. Craig Smith, was President and CEO of Avondale Mills, that was a hallmark of the textile industry. Mr. Smith was an innovative leader who put employee scholarships in place and privately funded the education of several employees' children. Now, by having established The J. Craig and Page T. Smith Scholarship Foundation, his daughter is continuing the family tradition of encouraging and inspiring others to learn.
