Mary Beard, Student
As a member of the SMU community and working as Student Employment Coordinator, Mary is in a unique position to not only have the opportunity to work with DISD students who are mentored by our own SMU students, but is involved with multi-cultural issues as Chair of the Commission on the Status of Racial Minorities. The Office of Community Involvement creates opportunities for enriching lives and encourages commitment to youth in the community who otherwise would not have the good fortune of being exposed to the education and experience of gifted speakers and perceptive participants with ideas that shape our society. The Office of Community Involvement is able to provide several scholarships for the 38th Annual Women's Symposium to SMU and DISD students who wish to attend due to the generous contributions of Sarah Holland, SunTrust Education Loans and Robert Hogeda and Andrea Schrock of LoanSTAR Educational Loans.
