    About This Fundraiser

    Mike Smith was a coach and educator at Holt High School for over 30 years. He is in the Holt High School and Michigan High School Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Although he was known mostly for coaching and teaching; loving all kids and parents was where he excelled. He loved and inspired everyone he met, and he made everyone around him want to be better. It goes without saying that, Coach Mike Smith touched the lives of thousands. We are looking to share in his memory by building an archway in front of the stadium that is now named after him, in his honor. However, to do this, we are in need of your help. We need to raise another $38,000 in order to complete this project, and we ask that you help us reach this goal by donating and sharing this campaign. All of your donations will be tax-deductible, and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Anybody who donates $500 or more will be recognized by a plaque on the arch. Please help us achieve our goal to help the memory of leader, winner, and legend, Coach Mike Smith live on. Thank you! GO RAMS!
