Kristi Smith

Senior Director of Alumni and Development

UA Little Rock

I work with alumni and friends of UA Little Rock. I graduated from college with no debt because of the Donaghey Scholars program which provided tuition, stipend and study abroad. That is not the case for many students today. Development is a perfect blend of helping a donor find their passion for the maximum impact on a college student.
