Smiths earn diplomas

Caleigh (Lien) Smith, a 2012 valedictorian at Carsonville-Port Sanilac High School, graduated summa cum laude (4.0 grade point average) from Asbury University in Kentucky in December 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in youth ministry.

Caleigh’s husband, Trevor Smith, formerly of Lapeer, graduated from Asbury University in May 2016, earning a Bachelor of Arts in biology.

Caleigh waited until May to participate in commencement ceremonies, so the couple could walk together.

Caleigh was awarded a full scholarship in the master’s degree program in youth ministry from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Texas.

The couple resides in San Antonio, where she attends classes while working as youth director for Bracken United Methodist Church.

Caleigh is the daughter of Clifford and Connie Lien of Carsonville.
