Our Executive Director, Matthew Smith, passed away on Monday, December 13th, 2021 following a tragic car accident. We are shocked and grieved by the loss of our beloved friend and visionary leader.
Matthew was deeply committed to ACE's vision for a self-sustainable culture of peace, productivity, and prosperity in the schools and communities with which we interact.
For those who wish to honor Matthew's memory with a donation to ACE, please know your gift goes towards our mission of making Social and Emotional Learning an integral part of education in Alabama as a tribute to his life's work.
Thank you for honoring Matthew with your special gift. Messages of Support are posted below.
