Through the generosity of Granger & Jan Davis and Milton & Claudia Davis, the Davis Family Lecture Series was created to feature prominent business men and women who have made a significant impact on business. As pillars of the UCA and Conway community, the Davis Family's gift to the UCA Centennial Campaign: New Vision, New Century inspired a lecture series open to all students, faculty, staff, and business community who wish to attend.
