Miriam spends most of her free time actively managing and spearheading a family of trusts started by her grandfather, Dr. Dwight H. Smith. The trusts focus primarily on scholarships at Furman University and The Medical University of South Carolina, where Miriam was a second generation alum. Thanks to the generosity of her grandfather and the fact he was the largest landowner in the state of South Carolina when he passed, there have been tremendous monetary contributions made to the upstate of SC through this family of trusts. Miriam has served on the board of the family corporation her grandfather first formed back in the 1940s since she was in highschool. This family corporation, Land and Investments Inc, has given Miriam the ability to fund her passion of giving back to the state she will always call home.
