our people. Our COMMUNITY. Our Mission.
As a small, local company, L.I. Smith & Associates (LIS) is proud to support the Henry County community through sponsorships and participation in special events. We value our community and the people in it, and, for this reason, it is our mission to make a positive impact on Henry County and the surrounding region through our community involvement efforts.
We pride ourselves on staying active in the community in many ways, including sponsorships of Henry County High School athletics and band, participation in events held by local nonprofits, as well as our time spent in the classroom teaching our youth about the importance of the science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) fields.
In fact, we regularly visit upwards of 10 schools and universities throughout the region to share our industry expertise and experiences. These schools include Harrelson Elementary School, Henry Middle School, E. W. Grove School, University of Tennessee at Martin, and Murray State University, among others.
