NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After being a nominee for an NAACP award in 2012, Dr. Johnnie Smith will once again be involved with the process as a member of this year's nominating committee.

Dr. Smith, works closely with Tennessee student-athletes and their academic development will be a part of the NAACP’s awards to honor great achievements in many areas.

“I am humbly appreciative of this prestigious honor and I am grateful to the NAACP Image Award Executive Board for inviting me to participate and share my expertise,” Dr. Smith said of the selection.

Dr. Smith will participate as a member of the nominating committee in the Instructional Literary category. As a member of the committee Smith’s role will be reading a number of book selections to determine the finalists in the category.

In 2012, Dr. Smith was honored by NAACP as a nominee for the Instructional Literary Category for her book “Succeed Indeed featuring Academic Boot Camp.” With her achievements in academics, Dr. Smith believes her success will allow current student-athletes to achieve even more at Tennessee State and beyond.

“By being a part of this committee, it will allow me to inspire student-athletes to excel in the classroom and on the field so that they may reach this outstanding level in their respective careers,” said Dr. Smith.
