Mrs. Davis was my principal when I started kindergarten in the fall of 1976! Today, I'm 48 years old and I am honored to have had such a positive role model in my life as an educator. A person of color that has left a lasting positive impression on our community. We must pick up the torch and continue the the work that Mrs. Davis has started. Mrs. Davis, will be missed by her natural family as well as the family that she created through her love, support, and dedication as an educator!
