Louise Small touched many lives in the community as a teacher, welfare director, neighbor, friend, and concerned citizen. Education was very important to Louise and she realized that most students need assistance in accomplishing their desire for a higher education. She recognized that many students failed to achieve their potential, not for the lack of intelligence or ambition, but for lack of finances. This was the purpose of setting up the Louise Small Foundation several years before her death.
