David Davis

GRADUATE’S EDUCATIONAL TRIP ACCOMPANIED BY CAST OF MANY

David Davis summarizes his experience at LCCC as, "No trip has taken this long and I had a lot of company on this one." Graduating this spring with an associate of arts degree, Davis, who works full time and has a 3-year-old son, owes his degree and educational success to the helpful and "outstanding" teachers at LCCC.

With intentions to pursue a career in education and acquiring his bachelor's degree as an intervention specialist (K-12) through the University Partnership program offered through Ashland University, Davis has very concrete plans for a prosperous future.

Balancing work, family and studies has been especially taxing for Davis, but he admits that he could not have done without the flexible scheduling of classes and endless discussions and extra help from his teachers.

Davis takes graduating very seriously. He has done a thorough genealogical research and has discovered that no one in his family – dating back several generations – graduated from college.

"I did the research back up to 1839 and found out that nobody graduated college, that is a lot of pressure as well as a very proud moment," David admits. "My grandmother taught art and my father attended Harvard University but had to leave to fight in the Korean War, so could not complete his degree,” Davis said. Unfortunately, he did not live to see his son reach graduation and that is one of Davis's regrets. "It is something he wanted for me, badly," Davis noted.

"If my current coursework holds, I will graduate with 75 credit hours, a 4.0 GPA, and as a member of Phi Theta Kappa," Davis said, "This is a proud, proud day for me and my family, and Dad will be with me, in spirit."
