About Jimmy Smith

Jimmy Smith was an integral part of creating the Town of Boone’s state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant, formally known as the Jimmy Smith Wastewater Treatment Plant, which has won engineering excellence awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies of North Carolina.

Jimmy, who passed away in 2000, was a professor of mathematics at Appalachian from 1968 to 2000. Smith was a leader in the university and the local communities. He served as chairman of Appalachian’s Department of Mathematical Sciences and president of Appalachian’s faculty senate.

Among the numerous awards Jimmy received during his career was the Annenburg Foundation Award for an Introduction to Mathematics course he helped design. During fall 2000 convocation, he received the W.H. Plemmons Leadership Medallion from Appalachian State University.

Jimmy was active with Appalachian’s assessment program, which tests undergraduates with attitude and experience surveys, and skills tests. Jimmy also was instrumental in starting Appalachian’s Freshman Seminar Program, a semester-long orientation course designed for first-semester freshmen and transfers.
