Providence, R.I.-The Rhode Island Association for the Intercollegiate Advancement for Women (RIAIAW) honored G. Gail Davis '60 with the organization's Lauren Anderson Lifetime Achievement Award for contribution to R.I. athletics at a banquet hosted by Providence College on Tuesday evening.

After her retirement, Davis joined the Student-Athlete Support Staff in the athletic department, first as a proctor, and then took over as the Coordinator of Student-Athlete Development, a position she held from 2004 until recently stepping down. Her duties included monitoring study hall, overseeing community service initiatives and RICís Choices Program.

 

Davis has been a mentor to countless RIC student-athletes during her tenure and will be sorely missed.
