Memorial Fund for Colleen Smidt

A week never went by when, either a community meeting or on Facebook or in person, Colleen Smidt wasn’t addressing a local issue. On December 7th, this great advocate left our world. 

Known for her wit and her straight-forwardness in tackling local issues, Smidt was active in just about anything and everything Bremerton.  She attended most Bremerton School Board meetings. Improving education in Bremerton was a primary focus for her; her son, Nick, is a junior at Bremerton High School.

She wanted the best schools, the best local government. I think her concern was based in the great love she had for her family. She wanted so much for Jason and Nick. She was protective like a momma bear. And her protective, almost fierce voice, was for her family and reached into the entire community. Bremerton schools are better today because of Colleen Smidt.

Please help us to continue Colleen's work in supporting education by providing your support for Nick's educational future.
