   Valerie Kay Smith was born on January 21, 1964, to parents Ballard and Frankie (Tolson) Smith in Winamac, IN.  She was baptized at the Southern Baptist Church where she grew up in North Judson, IN.  Val attended grade school and graduated from North Judson-San Pierre Schools with the class of 1982.  After graduation, she continued her education at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN, graduating with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
