Employee Giving Campaign: Dan Smith Supports the Foster School of Medicine

Each month, a Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso employee who contributes to the university’s Employee Giving Campaign will be featured. Participating in this campaign sends a powerful message to the community that employees not only work here, but also truly believe in our mission to serve all people through exemplary patient care, education and research. This month’s employee is Dan Smith, technician III in Information Technology Services, Classroom Technology.

Dan Smith was raised to do the “right thing.” The right thing for Smith, technician III in Information Technology Services, Classroom Technology, means giving his time, treasures and talents to organizations that made an impact in his life.

An early riser, Smith gets to the TTUHSC El Paso campus before most others to help set up classrooms for lectures, meetings and other events. He goes through his daily work with care and attentiveness, providing time and talent for the greater good of his workplace and community.

He does not stop there.

“I give when I can to the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine Excellence Fund or other causes in the community,” Smith said of his annual charitable giving. “I recently helped with my grandson Edward’s bike-a-thon.”

Smith and his wife, Nan, have made giving a priority in their marriage and family. “We taught our daughters the value of being active in the community,” he said. Altruism flows freely from the Smith clan. Their two adult daughters Tiffany Smith and Dana Guerra are community advocates, always willing to lend a helping hand.

“The Foster School of Medicine’s 10-year anniversary is coming up in February. I am excited to assist with the project for work,” said Smith, adding, “I know my daughters will be supportive as well.”
