Clemson was a part of the Penn State women’s track and field team from 2002-2007 which included top-three finished for shotput and discus in Big Ten competition and the Penn Relays. She went on to earn 3 degrees from Penn State: Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education in 2007, Master of Education in Educational Leadership in 2011, and a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership in 2016. Clemson has studied, authored, and presented across the US and Canada extensively on the topic of schools and incarceration. Today she works as a high school English teacher in Ohio, as well as serving as the school’s head coach for both the women’s JV and varsity volleyball high school teams and assistant coach for the track and field high school team.
Davis is a native of West Philadelphia, attending the same high school as Will Smith, Wilt Chamberlin, and the first African American astronaut, Guy Bluford. While at Penn State, he was a “walk-on,” non-scholarship football player, and progressed to a starting position playing in both the Cotton Bowl and the Sugar Bowl in 1972. Davis graduated from Penn State in 1973 with a bachelor’s degree in Health Education. Upon graduation, he began his professional career coaching at Cornell before moving toward spending nearly three decades in administrative roles in both university and high school settings. During his professional career, Davis obtained his master’s degree in Human Resource Development from the American International College in 1993. Today, Davis is the Founder and CEO of the Institute for Human Relations, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to the study of effective human relations skills that help individuals, organizations, and communities address critical issue areas such as diversity, education, and sports. He wants to use the Institute to help others help themselves by providing the resources they need that will assure they are prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
