David Davis, a certified grounds manager at Wake Forest, received the Professional Grounds Management Society’s (PGMS) Special Award of Distinguished Service during ceremonies at the Society’s 2014 School of Grounds Management & GIE+EXPO held in Louisville, Ky., on Oct. 24.
The award recognizes outstanding service from a board or committee member.
Davis was honored for organizing a community service event at the Odd Fellows Cemetery, a landmark in Winston-Salem, N.C., that had fallen into disrepair. More than 200 local residents, PGMS members and students from area colleges donated their time to help clean up much of the 13-acre site.
