Smedley was recently named Sharyland independent School District’s Secondary Teacher of the Year.
Growing up, Smedly witnessed the influence her mother made in the lives of her students. She also saw the rewards her mother received.
Her parents gave her the foundation she needed to be successful and the confidence to lead by example, she said.
In her college years she began volunteering, helping coach junior high basketball and track at a local school.
