Kathy Smith, BS

Board Vice Chair

Kathy Smith, BS serves as Chair of The Pink Affair Committee. Kathy L. Smith was a founder and former Executive Director of the Leadership Johns Creek program for adult leaders living or working in Johns Creek. Prior to taking on this part-time position in 2009, Kathy worked in the corporate world of technology for 20+ years. When her son entered elementary school Kathy retired from corporate America and became a full-time “volunteer” for several organizations including Boy Scouts of America, Georgia PTA and Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) fraternity. As a ZTA alumna, Kathy became involved in supporting the fight against breast cancer in 1992 when the Fraternity changed the focus of their national philanthropy to “breast cancer education and awareness”.

In 2001 the ZTA North Fulton Link Alumnae Chapter began hosting an annual fundraiser, entitled The Pink Affair, to benefit local nonprofit organizations associated with breast cancer. Beginning in 2007 TurningPoint became one of several beneficiaries of the event. The relationship between the alumnae chapter’s Pink Affair Committee and TurningPoint quickly became a “partnership” of friendship and support. In 2013 the two organizations joined forces and The Pink Affair became TurningPoint’s signature annual fundraiser. Kathy continues to volunteer as The Pink Affair Committee Chair.

Kathy received a BS in Business Administration from The University of Tennessee. She has one son and the best daughter-in-law in the world. Now retired, Kathy enjoys living in Dawsonville on Lake Lanier with her little dog, Dixie.
