Energized by my fellow classmates who started RARE. Open discussions are a necessary foundation for promoting racial equity. Recognizing students who contribute toward creating a climate of racial equity is a fitting tribute to James Davis.

I was looking at my 1971 Annual for what James had to say. What stuck out to me was what he put down as his passions: 1) People…he genuinely cared! 2) Football…his sports passion 3) Roughriders…Serving others! He was a leader when he was 18!!! James was genuine… he delivered results…he was a team player…he built relationships ( even 50 years later)…he was courageous…a great communicator and he inspired som many…to this day. He was part of a class I always looked up to. He was accepting of me and now has motivated me from the grave to support those who emulate his character!! He was RARE…and so can we all be‼️

James Davis was an inspiring teammate, class officer and friend. I am enthused to support his racial equity philosophy via RARE and the James Davis Scholarships.

Our class had the 1st group of volunteer black kids bused to Roosevelt. "Why do they sit together at lunch?" I sat with them when I could; and realized how little I knew about their experiences in a majority white country. Empathy is such a key ingredient to make this country live up to our claims of fairness and equity. RARE is working in that direction. Randy (Randolph) Carter was a bused student, and I admired his bravery.

James Davis was a teammate, a co-worker and a friend. But my relationship with him was also a sign of hope - that despite our country's terrible treatment of blacks in the past, in the future we could live together in a country "with liberty and justice for all." I am sad that we haven't made more progress but, with enough local efforts like this, we will get there.
