In the meantime, please join us as we welcome back a longtime friend of the WELL. Dakia “Kia” Davis served the Wade Edwards Learning Lab and Foundation in several roles (foundation and program assistant, volunteer, lab assistant, etc.) from 2000 to 2005. Kia will coordinate WELL Forums, the Student Advisory Board and provide general foundation and program support. We’re excited that Kia will be joining us once again as Foundation Assistant. 

Kia is returning to us from Greensboro, NC where she studied social work, women’s and gender studies and nonprofit management at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). After graduating she worked as the Administrative Coordinator for the Greensboro Hope Project, a youth gang prevention initiative and served as a volunteer counselor for the Women’s Resource Center of Greensboro. She will be with us until winter 2010 when she heads for Washington, D.C. to attend Howard University for a master’s degree in social work. Follow her journey to D.C. here!
