The Mark Smith Annual Scholarship honors the memory of former Dean of Students Mark W. Smith, who passed away in May 2018. Dean Smith started at Eckerd in the fall of 1978 and served the College until his retirement in 1990. He believed that the importance of a liberal arts education was to educate students to choose to be givers in everything they do.
As a tribute to Dean Smith, who coined the phrase “Be an Eckerd Giver,” please consider contributing to the Mark Smith Annual Scholarship. Gifts received by June 30 will be awarded to a deserving student in the upcoming academic year.
Giving to Eckerd through the Web is easy, secure and convenient. Your gift will be processed, and a formal receipt will follow in the mail. If you don’t want to contribute online, we’re happy to accept your gift by phone or mail.
