Malinda W. Davis graduated from Piedmont Community College (PCC) in 1997 with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Social Service. She made a career of serving at-risk youth and had a passion for helping people realize their own potential. Malinda’s family is continuing this outreach effort with a memorial scholarship at her alma mater.

While completing her degree at PCC, Malinda was a wife, a mother, and a full-time employee. Recognizing the determination it takes to raise a family while continuing one’s educational goals, Malinda’s family would like to support a PCC student who is also a parent with this $500 award.

During her career, Malinda worked with the Person County Extension office and Juvenile Crime Prevention where she was an advocate for all her clients. She gave the youth in her community a second opportunity when she created the Teen Court program.

This voluntary diversion program, in which teens sentence their peers for first time misdemeanor offenses, holds youth accountable for their actions while also offering a chance to change their direction. Malinda was very proud of the Teen Court program and several of the youth that she served returned to share with her the difference she made in their lives.

Malinda’s unwavering guidance and support provided numerous opportunities over the years. The scholarship in her memory will continue to open doors and change lives. To contribute to this scholarship fund, or to start another in honor or in memory of a loved one, contact Beth Townsend at beth.townsend@piedmontcc.edu or (336) 322-2104.
