Smiths named “Family of the Year”

The Smith Family (left-right) front row – Kayla, Jacee, Naomi and Ray; back row – Kristin and Tim – received recognition as the Smoky Mountain Area Family of the Year for 2010 for their support of the Special Olympics program.  “The family’s support of Jacee extends beyond the immediate family,” said Lana Lambert, Qualla Boundary Special Olympics coordinator, who nominated the family for the award.  “Many extended family members show up to cheer for her and her teammates at events across the state.”
