“This is the greatest honor in my whole life,” Davis said. “I’m honored. I believe in service to the community and giving back, so I want to do the best that I can for the community and the students.”
Davis served as a member of the MSSU Foundation Board for 18 years. He estimates that it was that service that got him tabbed to succeed board member Jane Wyman, of Joplin, whose term recently expired.
“This came out of nowhere,” Davis said. “I supposed they liked what I did for the foundation, but I have no idea who nominated me.”
Davis said he would like to work for greater rapport with the community and work to provide more of a college-town atmosphere.
