Full Media's Davis White Receives Young Man of the Year AwardFull Media President Davis White received the Gainesville Jaycees Young Man of the Year award Thursday night during the 66th installment of the Jaycees awards banquet.
During his high school years, Davis' passion for community service took root as he served as both a member and officer of the Gainesville High School Key Club. His service within this organization earned him the John C. Thompson award during his junior year.
After graduating from the University of Georgia, Davis joined the Gainesville Jaycees where he served troubled youth and participated in their yearly secret Santa festivities. Through the Gainesville Jaycees, he was first introduced to the North Georgia non-profit Challenged Child and Friends. Now serving in his 9th consecutive year on the Challenged Child and Friends board – having served two years as chairman – Davis is committed to the organization’s mission of providing support services to families who have children with disabilities.
Since November 2009, Davis has served as chairman of the United Way of Hall County’s annual campaign. With a goal of raising $1.8 million, Davis’ platform of taking action at the local level will re-invest money back into Hall County-based agencies that focus on children and youth, crisis intervention, self-sufficiency and health.
Kris Nordholz, CEO of Full Media, said, “Davis and I have been friends since childhood, and I cannot think of a person more deserving of this award. Being a man of strong integrity, Davis has always put others’ needs above his own. I’m proud to call him a friend and blessed to work with him every day. We couldn’t be more proud of him.”
