They broke the mold when she stepped out of her native New Orleans and landed in Lowell, Massachusetts years ago. She is indeed a “class act.” Petite yet powerful. Elegant but effective. Classy but community focused. And my oh my…does she know how to host a Martin Luther King celebration each year! The entire city of Lowell comes out to support it!
We’re talking about Lura Smith, the Assistant to President Carole Cowan at Middlesex Community College and the founder of the Lura Smith Fund.
Lura and her husband Robert are LONGTIME supporters of my conference and the Multicultural Symposium Series. Lura is the Conference Emcee and Robert takes wonderful photos and video records each event I hold. I am very very fortunate to have them as my friends and supporters of this endeavor. And my friendship with Lura has led to a longtime relationship with Middlesex Community College.
So get ready for a charming emcee at the November 6th Multicultural Conference. Lura knows how to work a room and help build the cultural connection at each and every event.
State Street Corporation is the LEAD SPONSOR of the Multicultural Symposium Series.
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Lura Smith and her husband, Robert, reside in Lowell, Massachusetts. They are the blessed parents of two sons, Alvin M. Chapital, III (spouse Donna) of Haymarket, Virginia and Dr. Brent A. Smith (spouse Jillian) of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the grandparents of twin boys, Alvin Maurice and Addison Blake Chapital.
A graduate of the School of Management, Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Lura joined Middlesex Community College in the Fall of 1994, as Assistant to the President. Prior to joining Middlesex, Lura served for eleven years as Sr. Marketing Manager for Wang Laboratories, Inc.
As a forty-one year resident of Lowell, Lura supports the community through her involvement on numerous non-profit boards. Among her most precious accomplishments is her collaboration with the Middlesex Community College Foundation in the creation of the Lura Smith Fund. This Fund was established in 1999 with the mission of providing scholarship opportunities, programs and events that reflect the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We hope that YOU will attend this upcoming conference. It will be held at the University of Massachusetts - Boston Campus on Thursday November 6, 2014 from 8am to 3pm. Tickets are only $99, which includes a 12 month membership in the Multicultural Symposium Series.
