Will Smith ’13 visits campus for Q&A

KCD Lifer and catcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Will Smith ’13, visited campus on Thursday, December 2 to participate in a question and answer session led by Amy Elliott, Director of Athletics.
During the Upper School's x-period assembly, Smith spoke about his experience as a professional athlete and offered advice on hard work and resilience. 

One student asked, "What keeps you motivated?" Smith stated, "I just try to be the best person—the best baseball player I can be—and that's what keeps me going."

Smith was inducted into KCD's Athletic Hall of Fame as a member of the Royal Bearcat Society in October 2021; he received his award at the start of the Q&A session.
