Who was Trent Smith?

Trent Smith was a former cross country/track & field standout at North Iowa Area Community College from 2011-2013.  Trent was NIACC’s first male cross country All-American, and he still holds the indoor 3,000 meter record. While at NIACC, Trent worked as a student ambassador in the Admissions Department. Trent was tragically killed in the fall of 2016 in a car accident. Trent Smith left his mark and definitely will be missed by his NIACC family.
