The beginning of a new school year is always full of excitement for students and staff. Sometimes the excitement is combined with a surprise. On Friday, August 10, Dr. Davis was pleasantly surprised when he was awarded the honor of being named a Kentucky Colonel. Dr. Davis was nominated for the honor by former Laurel County Center for Innovation (CFI) student, Houston Nolan, and the nomination was affirmed by Governor Matt Bevin. “To say that I was humbled, moved, and brought to tears is an understatement,” exclaimed Davis.
Joining in the recognition in front of a large audience of students was Dr. Bennett, Laurel County Schools Superintendent. Dr. Bennett shared kind words of encouragement and acknowledgment of Davis’ work at the CFI. “Today, is one of those very special moments in a career that has spanned over 25 years of service,” said Davis.
Congratulations, Dr. Davis!
