But Davis and four other HISD employees and volunteers were honored for their services during a special luncheon held on April 30. She says she has only been with the district since last November and was surprised to discover she would be receiving an award for simply doing her job.
“I’m really humbled,” Davis said. “I just treat students how I would want anyone else to treat my own children.”
