Press Release

CROUSE, N.C. - Crouse Community History and Photo Project is pleased to announce that Richard Smith has been scheduled as the guest speaker for the Tuesday, November 14 Crouse Community History and Photo Project meeting.

Richard will share with the group the research and process involved in his most recent project: LHS Football Scrapbook 1921-1958. This project grew out a realization from Richard that even though he played football while in high school and returned to teach and coach until his retirement in 2000, it became evident that he had missed much along the way.

Richard is a lifelong Long Shoals resident and has a deep interest in local history, family genealogy and accumulating photographs. He attended Long Shoals Elementary School, Lincolnton High School, North Carolina State College, Lenoir-Rhyne College and UNCC.

Following college Richard played professional baseball with the Washington Senators organization for six years.

Richard retired in 2000 after a 30 year career at Lincolnton High School where he both taught and coached. He and his wife Patsy Stamey Smith, who was a high school class mate, have been married for 50 years; they have one daughter, Kelli, a teacher at Love Memorial Elementary School. Kellie is married to Tracy Huss and they have twins-a boy and girl 12 years old.

Prior to Richard’s presentation we will enjoy a short seasonal digital photo presentation.

This event will be held in the Fellowship Hall of Crouse United Methodist Church, GPS address 3311 Crouse School Road, Crouse, NC 28033, on Tuesday, November 14 at 4:00 p.m. The meeting is free and open to the public.

"The Crouse Community History and Photo Project’s mission is to accumulate, organize, identify, catalog, archive and preserve the memories, photographs and documents pertaining to the history and families of the Crouse community.”
