U.Va. Assistant Dean Of Students Honored For Commitment To Helping Non-English Speakers

October 20, 2000 -- University of Virginia assistant dean of students Pablo Davis recently received the first annual Assistance to Non-English Speakers Award, given by the Blue Ridge English as a Second Language Council (BRESL).

The award recognizes a man or woman who "promotes feelings of community, shared values, and mutual respect through efforts to help non-English speakers in Central Virginia," according to BRESL president Frances Lee-Vandell.

Among Davis’s accomplishments is the founding of the Latino Roundtable, an organizational base for various community groups reaching out to Latinos. He has also been heavily involved in a number of initiatives such as First Glance, a tutoring program for middle and high school Latino children.

Davis was presented with a plaque at an Oct. 14 lunch that included an address by U.Va. professor and "Cultural Literacy" author E.D. Hirsch.
