March 19th, 2012 by blyndes

Plymouth— Will Davis of Holderness is joining the Plymouth State University President’s Council. The President’s Council is a volunteer advisory group that provides leadership and support to the President of Plymouth State University regarding development and fundraising. Davis recently retired from the brokerage firm Credit-Suisse in Boston and also previously served on the board of trustees at Berklee College of Music. PSU President Sara Jayne Steen said Davis’ experience will be very beneficial to the institution.

Holderness resident Will Davis named to Plymouth State University's President's Council.

“Will brings a wonderful set of talents to the Council,” said Steen. “His significant background in finance and his volunteer fundraising experience will be enormous assets.  He also understands education and can articulate what Plymouth State means for students and for the region.”

In 2001, the Berklee College of Music honored Davis both with an honorary doctorate in music and by naming a reception hall in its performance center the ‘William Davis Room.’ Davis also serves on the board of trustees of the Little Church Theatre in Holderness, and is a supporter of the Squam Lakes Association, the Squam Lake Conservation Society, and the Natural Science Center of Squam Lakes. Davis said he is excited to work with Plymouth State.

“This place is a gem! I have been deeply impressed with Plymouth State since we came to Holderness in 1980,” Davis said.

The Council, established at Plymouth State University in 2001, was organized to raise funds for endowments and to develop University resources that will advance the mission and vision of PSU. Seeing fundraising more as “friend-raising,” Davis’ aim is to help tell the compelling story of Plymouth State’s unique contribution to higher education and to New Hampshire.

“I’m confident that once more people understand the University’s contributions, they will want to support it,” Davis noted.

Members of the President’s Council include alumni, parents, and friends from across the country.
