Where are they now?- Jason Smith

Where Are They Now: Taylor Smith

For this week’s “Where Are They Now,” I chose to interview my dad, Jason Smith. He graduated from Elbert County Comprehensive High School In 1989.  Throughout high school, Jason was not very involved in many extracurricular activities due to working, but that doesn’t change how much he loved being a Blue Devil!

Today, Jason is an accountant at his business, Smith Business Consultants. After graduating high school, he continued his education at Georgia Southern University. He has a business degree as well as a degree in accounting. Achieving both of those degrees had been a dream of his since he was young. Jason learned, through working, that most things in life don’t come easy. He studied and worked hard to achieve his two degrees. He is now still supporting our Blue Devils by serving on the True Blue Board. Jason loves being part of the community and our schools.

Some people have said that coming from Elberton, you won’t ever be able to end up anywhere in life, but for my dad, that only made him want to work harder. As long as you put your mind to it you’ll be able to do it.
