Why I Serve: Jerome Davis

Posted by Wesley Paraham on Mar 09, 2020

March 8-14 is AmeriCorps Week 2020, and we’re celebrating each day by shining a light on one of the dedicated and hard-working AmeriCorps Service Members serving at BRIDGES! 


My name is Jerome Davis. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Tuskegee, Alabama. In December of 2016, I graduated from Huntingdon College with a bachelor’s degree in sports management. As an undergraduate, I served as President of the Black Student Union and as a Senate member in the Student Government Association (SGA), as well as being a 2 time letterman of the Huntingdon Hawks Basketball team. I enjoy all things outdoors (fishing, hiking, exploring, etc) and also a good sporting event (Go Grizz!). When I have time I enjoy listening to music and playing music on my alto saxophone.

I chose to serve as an AmeriCorps member because I want to serve others and especially communities in need. As an AmeriCorps member I feel I am given the unique opportunity to not only serve a community but to also become a part of a community that stands to adversity and strives for a better future. I chose Bridge Builders because I feel am the next generation of strong public servants with a passion for advancing our youth and inspiring the next generation of confident young leaders.
