Davis also has been involved with Miss USA; taught a student who was Miss Teen Tennessee; and also taught a student who was third runner-up to Miss USA. Davis’s love and focus has always been with the Miss America pageant. She is devoted to developing young women into strong community leaders and helping provide scholarships.
