Sharon Green Inspired by Carmen Davis
You know I always say everyone needs a Carmen Davis, but they can’t have mine! Carmen, you are a walking inspiration. You’re a consistent advocate for our kids, local artists, and small businesses. When the pandemic hit, you and a group of friends jumped into action immediately to provide daily hot meals to kids in areas that relied on school meals for food. You are a charter member of a fund that invests in organizations and businesses in the Black community. You’re a big supporter of culinary arts programs for our local high schools. Those kids are afforded the opportunity to work alongside world-renowned chefs. That experience alone is priceless. You also work tirelessly for Teacher Appreciation Week. I’ve watched you work with several schools and local business owners to secure donated breakfasts and lunches for teachers, administrators, and support staff.
I could go on all day about all the things that you do. You don’t do any of it to be recognized. You do it because you believe that “To whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48). Sis, you have inspired me to be more active in our community. It’s impossible to be around you and not get inspired to get in the trenches. I know I’m on three to four boards just from your recommendation, and I love the work we are doing with those organizations. When you call, I simply ask, “Do you need a check, or are we hitting the ground running?”
