I am so sorry to hear about Dr. Smith. I took my first psychology class from him at TCC in 1971. His class truly inspired me. I had just gotten out of the Army and had no idea what to do with my life. I was not sure if I was even cut out to go to college. But is gentile manner and wisdom was very empowering to me. I went on to earn at Ph.D is psychology and have had a rewarding career as a rehabilitation psychologist. I have thought about him many times through the years. I owe a lot to Dr. Smith and I know he will be missed dearly. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
