Vice-President - Amy Smith

Amy Smith was elected to the Lovejoy ISD Board of Trustees in May 2016. She and her
husband, Abe, have two children in the Lovejoy Independent School District, and two
LISD graduates at Baylor and TCU. Amy is a Master Trustee and graduate of
Leadership TASB Class of 2020, Leadership Allen/Fairview Class XXIV and the
inaugural Leadership Lovejoy Class. Amy’s experience in the Leadership Lovejoy Class
inspired her to create and implement the Lovejoy Letter Campaign. This campaign is a
way for students and parents to personally express their appreciation and gratitude for
all the employees of Lovejoy ISD. These hand-written letters are collected and
subsequently delivered to the staff the Friday before Thanksgiving as a gesture to show
how much they are valued. 
Amy received the PTA Lifetime Member Award in 2016. She previously served as the
PTA President at Puster Elementary, the Secretary and VP of Membership of the PTA
Executive Board and served as a director on the Lovejoy Foundation Board. Amy is
currently a member of the National Charity League with her daughter and has also
served in the Junior League of Collin County. Through Junior League she was the
community representative, working with Hopes Door in conjunction with the Juvenile
Justice Division of Collin County. Through the Juvenile Justice Division of Collin County,
Amy served as a mentor and conducted training sessions for juveniles aged 12-15 that
had been placed on probation for nonviolent misdemeanor offenses.
Amy graduated from Baylor University with a BBA in Marketing and obtained a second
degree from Ouachita Baptist University in Early Childhood Education. After teaching for
four years in the classroom and after the birth of their first child, she opened a Kumon
Math and Reading Center in McKinney. After ten years of growing a successful Kumon
Center (and three more children later), Amy sold the business in May 2014. From 2014
to 2018 she was an event planner and fundraiser for the Baylor Scott and White Health
Care Foundation raising funds for medical initiatives. Currently, Amy is the SW Region
Development Director for School Engagement with the American Heart Association.
Amy is also a certified Life, Growth and Health Coach.
When Amy is not running children around to their various activities, working or
volunteering, you can find her on the tennis court. She has been married for more than
25 years to Reverend Doctor Abe Smith. Abe is a United Methodist minister as well as a
life coach through his company
