A Message from the Executive Director


Community members,Herbie Smith

As a first generation college student, I understand first-hand the obstacles that stand in the way of higher education. I am humbled to be in a position to assist students in gaining the necessary tools to live out their lives and contribute to society. The San Marcos Promise is a need-blind scholarship assistance program that aspires to support all students in attaining the necessary level of post-secondary education to secure a meaningful job. We look beyond the traditional four-year college model to ask how we can equip students with skills, allowing them to secure full-time work.   Please join us in building a community vision for higher education through a recurring monthly contribution or payroll deduction. Your support will allow us to engage students via programs and scholarships, which lead to an employable workforce.

Healthy regards,

Herbie Smith
