University trustee Richard K. Davis, president and CEO of U.S. Bancorp, was recently awarded the President’s Lifetime Volunteer Service Award. As chairman of the Financial Services Roundtable’s 2007 Community Build Day initiative, Davis spearheaded that event, which enlisted more than 76 Roundtable member companies to mobilize more than 26,500 volunteers in all 50 states. Their efforts resulted in the collective building of 78 homes, the repair of an additional 96 homes, school supply and food and clothing drives, and more than two dozen walk/runs.
This year marks 30 years since USD became the home of the University of the Third Age (U3A) in 1978. With a mission of fostering lifelong learning, U3A offers workshops throughout the year, culminating with a summer session and celebration from July 14-31, 2008. The session that recently concluded included presentations on a variety of topics, ranging from campus history to Antarctic icebergs to the ways that media effects children.
