About the Author
Wade Smith, NFL Veteran and Pro Bowler from Dallas, Texas established The Wade Smith Foundation in 2012 to provide community support for youth programs throughout the DFW Metroplex and Greater Houston Areas. “It was an opportunity for me to give back to those people that helped me get where I am in life. I chose literacy and education as major focuses of the foundation because having that groundwork laid and putting emphasis on going to college and getting your degree leads you toward success and being able to do what you want in life.”
