Smith received a full scholarship to attend BGSU, funded by Dr. Peggie Hollingsworth ’71 and Dr. Charles Smith through the Sidney A. Ribeau President’s Leadership Academy. Dr. Hollingsworth and Dr. Smith have served as role models in his life, supporting him with his BGSU scholarship and personally as mentors and friends. They’ve inspired him to value education, work hard, and give back. Antonio Smith now attends medical school at Wayne State University.
One thing that Dr. Hollingsworth and Dr. Smith both instilled in me was to be a gift that keeps on giving.
