As we all know Marcus Smith’s mother Sheila passed away
last week. Due to his family situation Marcus is personally responsible for
funeral expenses. A college athlete on scholarship obviously doesn’t have
that kind of money and of course the NCAA won’t allow UNM to help Marcus with
However, friends are able to contribute to the memorial
fund in his mother’s name. Once again UNM cannot receive money directly, but you
can head to any First Community Bank in Albuquerque to make a deposit to the
Sheila M. Smith Memorial Fund.
Once again that is any First Community Bank in
Albuquerque and the name is
Sheila M. Smith Memorial
Any funds contributed to the memorial fund above and
beyond the expenses will be donated back to a local charity.
