Rachel Smith is from Brownsburg, IN and a graduate of Brownsburg High School.Her parents are Michael Smith and Crystal Lynn.
Famous relatives: The most famous relative would probably be my dad. I feel like everywhere we go someone's tapping him on the shoulder and talking to him.
Favorite class and why: My favorite class would have to be English, or in this case my Great Works class. I have always enjoyed writing way more than any math or science class. Although, I do enjoy Anatomy classes and learning how the human body works.
Favorite part of Hanover outside of class: The beauty of Hanover's campus has always intrigued me. I come from a suburb near central Indiana called Brownsburg, and although it was small to begin with, it has began growing rapidly the past few years. And as much as I love it there, I have always been a fan of living far from the hustle and bustle; out in the country, enjoying the beauty of nature.
What did you want to be growing up: I always wanted to be a veterinarian growing up, my love for animals, especially horses, has always been great.
What do you like to do outside of your sport: Outside running Cross Country and Track, I enjoy swimming, biking, and hanging out with friends. I hope someday triathlons will become my sport, but until then I'll stick with running!
