Welcome to another installment of “What is Your Story,” an opportunity to learn about the fascinating lives of The Woodlands residents.

Meet Dave Smith 👋
“I am sure many classmates have either “brushed” history or “made” history. In my case, I had an early “brush” that was quite interesting—I was present at the meeting of President Eisenhower and Nikita Khrushchev in September 1959, when Khrushchev became the first Soviet leader to visit the United States.” 😲

Read about Dave’s US Naval Academy adventures, the launch of Sputnik, his work undercover, and more at buff.ly/3QaU872 along with other shared stories from our residents.
