Alumni Spotlight - Donald Davis III


Donald Davis III



A Farmville, Virginia native, Donald graduated from Prince Edward High School with an advanced degree. After graduation he joined the Army to serve his country, but hurt his ankle before he could continue his education while in the military.

Donald worked in corrections for 6 years, until he decided it was time to pursue his initial dream to continue his education. Donald says, "I wanted to have a career that was less stressful and more financially rewarding."

He chose SVCC because it offered the opportunity to provide a better life for his family and a career change. Donald received his Commercial Driver's License and was gainfully employed by Maverick Transportation shortly after graduation. He still has the goal to gain more experience on the road and then transition to a company that offers local routes. 

His advice to potential students, "Stay focused, work hard, and pay attention to every detail."
