Senior Director of Development

Paul Davis ’77, came to Graceland in 1973 from Baltimore, Maryland thanks to a recruiting pitch from his high school football coach who knew about Graceland’s gridiron program and felt it would be a great adventure and solid fit. His coach had no idea he was transforming Paul’s life path.

Paul graduated from Graceland with a BA degree in Sociology and a minor in Political Science and found his way into radio broadcasting before transitioning to the television world. Stops as a local TV sports anchor-reporter in Virginia, North Dakota, Louisiana, New Mexico, Baltimore and Georgia helped him mark 17 years on the air. With five kids at home it was time for a more conventional work schedule, thus, a return to his alma-mater in 2004 learning the art of fundraising while also serving as the alumni programs office director for 9 years.

“It’s been so cool connecting with old classmates while working for a place I believe has deep value and worth to our world.”
