The Maxine A. Smith Center is named after Dr. Maxine A. Smith, a longtime civil rights and education leader locally and in our state. The new center provides a much needed service in the southeastern section of Memphis. Its location is convenient to Collierville, Germantown and Olive Branch as well. This area is one of the fastest growing areas of Shelby County and is a technology corridor. The academic emphasis of the new center, in addition to a general education niche, includes a high-tech focus.
The center is a three-story, 67,300 square-foot facility which houses a library, eight computer classrooms, 21 classrooms - chemistry, biology and science laboratories, a student lounge and administration offices.
