Stacy Smith Foundation hosts it's 4th Annual Awards Banquet

It was a packed room at the Embassy Suites-St. Louis Airport as SSF
held it's annual celebration in honor this years' scholarship recipients.  
This year, the foundation awarded scholarships to four talented,  
hardworking, deserving students for a total of 15 in
the short time since it was established just four
years ago.


Stacy Smith Foundation is
teaming up with
Barber Shop
to provide
children with fresh haircuts to
start the school year.  SSF
would like to thank the good
guys down at Snick's for so
generously donating their time
and talents to help kids not
only look good, but feel good
about returning to class!  


It's Back To School in style for the students at

Walbridge Elementary thanks To Stacy Smith

Foundation who generously donated uniforms

and school supplies.  This is the second year

SSF has made the contribution to the school

and hopes to make the kids transition back to

class a little easier.
This Christmas, SSF did something different.  We adopted Aames Visual &

Performing Arts Elementary School, providing toys and clothes for the

hearing impaired.  The sheer joy on the kids faces when they opened their

gifts was priceless!  We got a great thrill out of providing service to some

little people with big hearts!

That’s right!  Our very own Candace
Perkins, 2012 Hardship recipient,
showing up on billboards and signs all
over campus.  I guess you can say she’s
become the face of the University.

Looking good Candace!
Team Stacy came out in full force for this years basketball camp on June 26th and 27th.  Coach Ken put the
FUN back in fundamentals while putting the kids through drills designed to enhance their performance on the
court.  The walls of the gymnasium adorned with the number 12 at Clyde C.Miller Career Academy, this marks
the first time SSF has returned since hosting it’s initial camp there in 2009, giving the kids the chance to play
on the same court Stacy played many of his games on.

From the moment she spoke to the
audience at the awards banquet, we could
tell that she was destined for great things.  
That’s why we couldn’t be more excited to
hear that Heidi Savabi, 2010 Academic
graduated from the University of
Miami with honors!  Our selection
committee was quite impressed when they
read her essay on her scholarship
application, but even more impressive is
the focus, drive, and determination Heidi
has shown these past 4 years in turning
those dreams into a reality.  Stacy Smith
Foundation proudly congratulates Heidi on
graduating and wishes her continued
success in her bright and promising
