Remembering Board Member Marcelle Smith

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — August 16, 2021

It is with a heavy heart that we share the passing of one of Cardinal Innovations Healthcare’s Board Members, Marcelle Smith, on August 15, 2021. He was an advocate for children, dedicated to public safety, and a true public servant.

Smith was one of the youngest to have served as a Halifax County Commissioner and dedicated 15 years of his life to that role. He had an extensive background in community service, including service as past chair of the Halifax County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council. He served previously on the Scotland Neck Town Council and as a member of the Fayetteville State University Board of Trustees.

Smith also worked as a teacher, counselor, and most recently with the Department of Juvenile Justice as a Juvenile Court Counselor.

Marcelle’s commitment to Cardinal Innovations spanned more than eight years, and he was a consistent and powerful voice for our rural communities. We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and community.
