“Growing up in this area, campus has always felt like home to me,” said William Smith, director of philanthropy at the Marshall University Foundation.

Will attended Marshall and obtained his Bachelor of Arts in sports management before accepting a full time position working on campus.

“I had the opportunity to meet so many great people while studying here, it was an easy decision for me to stay in the Huntington area and work for this great university,” explained Will.

Joining the Marshall University Foundation in May of 2019, Will networks with alumni and friends in central and southern Ohio, west central Virginia and Knoxville, Tennessee. He enjoys hearing the experience and memories others have from their time at Marshall.

“I hope Marshall University continues to grow and thrive. We are under great leadership and the future is very bright,” he said.

William currently resides in Huntington, West Virginia, and enjoys golfing and being outdoors.
