James Davis

Recognition Year: 

Hailing from Enon, Ohio, James Davis joined the Navy at the age of 22 and served for seven years in San Diego, California. After leaving the service in 2015, he entered university, choosing geography as a major because he has always been obsessed with everything about the subject—maps, different cultures in various countries, even the weather. And he excelled. As one of his professors noted, “James is an exceptional student. His academic performance in a range of geography courses, engagement and enthusiasm in course content, and work ethic are quite exceptional. James is one of the best geography students in recent years at Wright State University.” James, who has a wife and two-year-old daughter, plans to pursue a graduate degree in geography and work in the GIS field, with the ultimate goal of teaching geography at a university.
