From high kicks to backpacks to mind-picking – Chrissie Garrett Smith has encountered diverse experiences since graduating in ’84.

Smith attended Kilgore Junior College and was a member of the Kilgore Rangerettes. After a year, she moved on to the University of Texas. In the summer of ’87, she backpacked through Europe and upon returning to the U.S. graduated from UT in ’88 with a communications degree.

Smith then went to the Denver Theological Seminary for her graduate work in counseling psychology. When she received her masters in 1991, she moved back to Dallas and married a Plano grad, Scott Smith, and began her career in psychotherapy at Dallas Christian Counseling Services and the Lewisville I.S.D.

The Smiths have a four month old English Bulldog. Chrissie says one of her most cherished achievements is her enduring friendship with Biz (Elizabeth) Davis Haddock ’84.

Making Music Around the State

Three Lake Highlands graduates are members of the Baylor University Contemporary Vocal Ensemble, “Living Proof.”

Wildcats who made the cut to be part of this elite group were Davie Kimball ’91, Jessica Stamps ’92 and Darric Scott ’93.

The Ensemble’s 16 members were chosen from auditions of Baylor’s sororities and fraternities. The group performed for the opening ceremony of Baylor’s Welcome Week in August and they were also recently featured at the Dallas Women’s Council Luncheon at the Anatole.

Helping Wildcats

There’s a club in our neighborhood that is doing wonderful things and would like to have more participants and supporters.

The Lake Highlands Scholarship Fund was organized in December 1991 to help Lake Highlands graduates with their financial college needs. Craig Evans serves as president of the organization and he informed me that three students were awarded scholarships from the ’93 class.

Other board members include L.H. grads Bruce Littlejohn, Phil Dial, Linda Rooth Goins and Madeline Miller Frank. Member contributions range from $5 to $10,000. For information, contact Evans at 343-4477.
