Larry E. Davis Earns Career Achievement Honors

Larry E. Davis

Pitt’s School of Social Work Dean Larry E. Davis has been awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by Nabhi Christian Ministries of Lincoln/Larimer for his work in strengthening communities, one of two recognitions he has recently received.

“We are so pleased to honor Dean Davis,” said the Rev. Jacque Fielder, pastor of Nabhi Christian Ministries. “His accomplishments at Pitt and in many more realms throughout his lifetime make him an ideal candidate for this award.”

The Ministries’ mission is to “build safe pathways for the healthy development of children victimized by or exposed to drugs, violence, and other harsh environments in Allegheny County.”

Davis was recognized this month at the Ministries’ awards dinner. It was the 20th year the organization has awarded community members.

Davis is also the recipient of the 2018 Society for Social Work and Research (SSWR) Distinguished Career Achievement Award, which will be presented to him in January at the SSWR annual conference in Washington, D.C. The honor cites Davis’ outstanding scholarship, impact on the profession and major contributions to social work knowledge development.
