In the last couple weeks, we have had the opportunity to celebrate the addition of our newest, full-time employee. Kim Davis (we hear rumors that her name is already trending on Twitter!), is a new Program Associate, part of a reorganization to better support each of our program sites. She will be overseeing programming at Anacostia, Beacon House, and Dunbar.
A native of New York and the daughter of a teacher, Kim has been working in DC since 2011. Following her graduation from George Washington University, Kim served two years as a Corps Member and Senior Corps Member for City Year at Kramer Middle School in DC’s Anacostia neighborhood.
After completing her service with City Year, Kim joined For Love of Children (FLOC), a neighborhood tutoring program that provides support around academics and college access. During her second year at FLOC, Kim was the organization’s Employee of the Year.
In the last couple weeks, Kim has had the opportunity to meet the Program Instructors and tutors that will become her colleagues during this school year. When she visited our Anacostia tutors at Ketcham Elementary for the first time, she was greeted by shouts of “Ms. Kim!” as they recognized her from their middle school days at Kramer. The excitement of those tutors showed us that we made a good decision bringing Kim onto our team.
We’re excited about the work she will do and the relationships she will build. By bringing exceptional talent onto our growing team, we know we will be able to make Reach both bigger and better in the years to come.
