Knoxville-based Master Service Companies owner Josh Smith has sold his company and will use the profits to help fund criminal justice reform initiatives, Knoxnews reports. Smith's yet-to-be-named foundation will invest millions of dollars in changing the culture of criminal justice from one of incarceration to transformation. In June, Smith was named to Gov. Bill Lee's Tennessee Criminal Justice Investment Task Force, created to address the criminal justice system, public safety and reentry. He hopes to fund training, workforce development and reentry programs through the foundation.
