Lisa Smith has been a member of our church since she was two when her parents, Del and Dusty Schulze (also longtime members of Main Street), moved to Greenwood. Lisa joined the staff in August, 2016. Main Street is where she grew up attending Sunday School and VBS, singing in various choirs, playing guitar in a group of seven girls here called “The Travelers,” spending every Sunday night having fun at UMYF, and participating here each summer as a teenager in a program called SAP (Summer Activities Program) with all of her friends.
She graduated from the University of Georgia with both a BFA in Drama/Theatre and a Masters of Secondary English Education. Lisa’s teaching career included high school (17 years): English, drama, speech/debate; elementary (9 years): 4th grade, gifted and talented 3rd-5th; middle school (7 years): ACTS Magnet Program drama 5th-8th. That’s 33 years of working with, encouraging, and loving 100’s of students!
Married to Jeff Smith for 30 years, whom she has played opposite to in many GCT productions since high school, they have two adult children- Granger and Mary Lyle, daughter-in-law Stephanie, one grandson-Campbell, and one granddaughter-Finnley.
