Humbled upon learning of the award, Davis said, “From an educational perspective, this is the most consequential award I’ve ever received. It’s about a life’s work, not about one particular initiative. After thirty years, looking back, I know this path was the right one for me.”
A four-minute video produced by TOWN Magazine features more about the honor. It includes remarks by the award’s sponsor, Davis and Furman trustees in addition to stunning footage of campus.
