Lilly Smith graduated from East Carolina University with an Elementary Education certification. She is the wife of Troy Smith, and the mother of two children, Ariana (15) and Jalen (12). She joined the Trinity community in 2015 after working in public education for 12 years. Lilly made the change to Trinity after realizing that laying a strong academic foundation is just as important as building a strong spiritual foundation. She believes that all children are created for God’s glory and endowed by Him with an inalienable potential to acquire wisdom and knowledge.
