Graduate Scholarship in Gender Studies
One of Sally's passions was the concept of fairness and equity for the women of the world. She worked actively to promote her beliefs through the Newfoundland Status of Women Council and through the peace movement. Dr. Charles (Chuck) Davis, her life partner, had been affiliated with Memorial University of Newfoundland for many years. Sally and Chuck spent many happy years living and working in Newfoundland.
It is fitting that a scholarship designed to honour Sally is established at Memorial in Gender Studies.
Someone like Sally will never be forgotten -- by her family and friends, and the many thousands of others she encountered and influenced so lovingly and generously in her long life. Sally was an independent spirit, someone who early in life learned the joys and the pain hard work in influencing positive change in teh world in which she lived.
We can celebrate her life and her accoomplishments but we can also honour her memory in a tangible way. The Sally Davis Scholarship does that.
Over the years she dedicated her energies in so many ways -- to the love and support of her husband and family, to her music, and to her early and ongoing interest in science. She worked actively and passionately for a number of causes -- the Peace Movement, the Women's Movement, and the Third World Consciousness Movement. Her fascination with Early Childhood Development was closely linked to her work as a librarian who saw love of reading as one of the greatest gifts we can give children.
This scholarship is one way to continue Sally's work.
