Terry Smith was appointed to a vacant position on the three-member Freedom Town Board last Thursday. She replaces Ty Harper, who resigned. A native of Eagleville, Missouri, she ended up in Mooreland, before moving to Freedom 22 years ago. She is married to Brett Smith and they have three kids, all out of the nest. Asked about being named to the Board of Trustees she said, "I'm just trying to help. We all have some ideas about things to improve upon and I hope I can contribute." Smith attended college at Northwest Oklahoma State University with majors in social work and business. She previously worked at the Freedom State Bank for eight years, and is now a two-year employee of Alva State Bank.
