Albany Technical College Names 2012 Employee of the Year

 

December 18, 2012- ALBANY, GA-Albany Technical College named the 2012 Employee of the Year on Monday, December 17th, during a faculty/staff holiday luncheon and recognition program. This year's winner is Angela Davis, Grants Coordinator/Compliance Officer with Albany Tech.


A native of Tacoma, Washington, Davis has been employed with Albany Tech for a little over two years. In her role as the Grants Coordinator/Compliance Officer, Davis has worked to identify grant funding and write grant proposals for college programs to enhance the services being delivered by the College. So far, Davis has been successful in securing over $5 million in grants for Albany Tech.


Davis originally moved to the Albany area to work as a Finance Specialist for the City of Albany's Community Development Department. During her seven years with the City, she gained a wealth of knowledge on housing and community development through the City's Flood Recovery program, which was federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This was only the beginning of Davis's grant experience. She took her skills and experience and later accepted a position as Assistant Community Development Director for the City of Americus. Here, she was responsible for writing, researching, and administering grants for the Community Development Department. She secured grants for housing and public infrastructure improvements in low-income neighborhoods, as well as other State-funded grants. After three years in this position, Davis was promoted to the Director of Community and Economic Development, where she was responsible for the management of various departments (transit, GIS, downtown development, and cemeteries).


"I am greatly honored to be chosen as Albany Tech's 2012 Employee of the Year," said Davis. "It is a privilege and honor to be chosen and I am truly grateful. Words cannot express the gratitude I have that someone thought so highly of me to nominate me. I am truly blessed."


Davis received her bachelor's degree in Finance from Alabama State University. She and her husband, Marquis, have one daughter, Marnell, and two dogs "Shiney and Trisket."
