If you see more stories about Utah Valley State College on Channel 4 news, Barb Smith may be the reason.

Smith, a weekend anchor at KTVX, has accepted the position of alumni association president at Utah Valley State College.

Along with the appointment, she becomes a member of the school's board of trustees.

Smith earned an associate's degree in early childhood development at UVSC and a bachelor's of arts degree in communications at Brigham Young University.

She has been a member of the alumni association board of directors for the past four years.

"I enjoy serving UVSC because this college gave me the opportunity to get an education that I would not have otherwise been able to afford," Smith said.
