StLawrencePlace Gerald-0208Gerald Davis Jr. has received the 2014 Outstanding Service Professional Award for his work at St. Lawrence Place, a transitional housing program for homeless families. USC’s Leadership and Service Center sponsors this award to honor a staff member of a local non-profit agency for their work with USC students, faculty, and staff.

Davis has worked closely with the Office of Student Engagement and Service Learning and various USC initiatives including “Let’s Talk Science,” “Communities in Harmony,” “Access to Higher Education,” and “Project Vida.” He has worked with these groups for the past two years providing extracurricular activities and education to the children of St. Lawrence Place.

Honored for his professional work with USC, Davis has also been closely involved with USC through the College of Social Work as a student. He has just graduated with his BSW, and he is starting the advanced standing MSW program this summer.

“This award means the world to me,” Davis said. “It spotlights the many hours of service I have dedicated to giving back to the community because someone helped me get to where I am today. I have always worked to give our youth experiences they might not have had the chance to be part of in the arts and science arena.”
