Kecia Davis, CLU's head athletic trainer, and student Tom Ham received Inspiration Awards during a special ceremony in Samuelson Chapel on Dec. 11.
The recipients were selected by a university committee to receive the awards that are given to a student and a CLU employee annually. The undisclosed cash award, provided by two anonymous CLU alumni, is designed to recognize the generous efforts and contributions of the recipients, who are chosen because they inspire others to grow intellectually and spiritually.
Davis, a resident of Thousand Oaks, was recognized for her contributions as an athletic trainer, administrator and mentor. As an athletic trainer in the Exercise Science and Sports Medicine Department and a member of the CLU administration since 1993, Davis works with athletes and students in the clinical athletic training program.
Ham, a senior art major, is from Yreka. He was praised for his participation in many organizations and activities on campus and his positive outlook on life. Along with being a cross–country runner, Ham is also active in several campus ministry programs.
