Welcome to B.J. Smith Elementary

B.J. Smith has been an active leader in Mesquite for more than 35 years, serving the community through city government and the school board.  B.J. served the citizens of Mesquite as an elected official for a record total of 24 years. For 10 years, he served on the Mesquite City Council, and he spent five years as mayor of Mesquite. In addition, he sat on the Mesquite ISD Board of Trustees for nine years. B.J. is the only person in the city's history to serve as both mayor of the city and president of the school board.

Throughout his life, B.J.
has worked to promote and preserve a positive relationship between the schools, the city, the Chamber of Commerce and local businesses, and he continues to do so today. After 30 years in private law practice, B.J. took over the Office of City Attorney in November 1988, a position he still holds today. The Mesquite Bar Association honored him with a lifetime membership. Through the efforts of Smith Elementary School's PTA, B.J. was further honored with a lifetime membership in that organization.
