Brenda Smiley

Preschool Director

I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas. When I was in the 4th grade, my family moved to Lawton. I graduated from Eisenhower High School in 1976. I attended Cameron University for 2 years.

I have been married for almost 34 years to Roger Smiley. He is a shift Operations Manager for Goodyear. We have three children. Angela is 32 years old (Softlines Assistant Manager at Sears) and is married to DJ Ryals (Cure Tech at Goodyear). They have three children; Ryan – 12, Emma – 9 and Drew 7. Amanda is 26 years old (Pre-K teacher at Elgin) and is married to Nick Cunningham (Lawton Firefighter). Our son Brandon is 24 years old and is an assistant manager at Big 5 Sporting Goods.

I have been at Cameron Baptist Church since I was 9 years old. I grew up in the Children, Youth and Singles divisions. I was married at Cameron Baptist. I served in the Preschool area as a childcare worker for 10 years, from 1983-1994. Then in 1994, I began serving as Part-Time Preschool Director.

I enjoy reading, shopping, Dallas Cowboys and OU football! I also love spending time with my family, especially with my grandchildren!

Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Jesus Christ is the one who gives me strength everyday to do things that I could not do on my own. Without Christ, I am nothing!!
