Columbia, MO (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Over the last 3 years, Aaron W. Smith (also known as A.W.), President of The A.W. Smith Law Firm, has contributed monetarily as well as countless hours to Ava's Grace Scholarship Foundation. Ava's Grace is an organization whose mission is to provide scholarships and funding to the children of Missouri inmates to enable them to continue their education after high school and break the cycle of incarceration. Ava's Grace and their work make it possible for a number of Missouri children to go on to pursue college degrees; without their financial support and encouragement, it would be nearly impossible for these youth's to continue their education.
A.W. Smith has served as a board member for Ava's Grace since 2009. In addition to monetary contributions, throughout the years he has dedicated hours of his time and hard work to help with fundraisers, idea generation and organization for Ava's Grace.
The A.W. Smith Law Firm, a Columbia, Missouri personal injury law firm, is making a dedicated effort to fulfill its social responsibility by addressing the needs of their community and those in surrounding areas. The A.W. Smith Law Firm grants charitable contributions to organizations that have dedicated themselves to promoting the welfare of their communities and the people in them. All of this is made possible through the hard work and generosity of The A.W. Smith Law Firm staff, in particular its president, Aaron W. Smith.
Aaron Smith and the staff at The A.W. Smith Law Firm feel that education is vital in breaking the cycle of incarceration and poverty. Through support and donation to Ava's Grace, the hope is to provide the children of inmates with the resources they need to fulfill their dreams of higher education and hopefully break the cycle which they were born into.

About the Ava's Grace Scholarship Foundation:
Ava's Grace Scholarship Foundation is providing HOPE to young people who have dreams of higher education and a different life. Their mission is to break the cycle of incarceration through the gift of education. Beginning in 2012, Ava's Grace Scholarship Foundation will award at least three scholarships per year to children who have an incarcerated parent or primary care giver. To date most funds targeting children of the incarcerated are aimed at children age 12-17 for after school care, mentoring and sports programs. While getting these children through high school is a very noble goal, there is NO other organization in existence focused on scholarships for higher education for this at-risk population - until now.
