Clark University President David Angle presented the 2017 John W. Lund Community Achievement Awards to Micki Davis and Megan Tighe for their service to the Worcester community.

The Award Winners

Davis has served on the Board of Directors of the YWCA Central Massachusetts since 2006 and currently serves as board president.

She helped create strategic plans for racial and gender justice for early care and education, wellness, and health equity, and women’s economic empowerment and domestic violence services. She also provided strategic planning for leadership continuity and improved governance for the organization.

In addition, Davis is a member of the United Way of Central Massachusetts’ Women’s Initiative, and has represented Clark in the community through programs such as Leadership Worcester.

Davis has worked in community engagement at Clark since August of 2005. She received her Master of Public Administration from Clark in 2009; she currently is working toward a doctorate in education and organizational leadership at Northeastern University. 

She is a resident of Worcester.

Tighe was honored for her longstanding commitment to and support of St. Peter’s Church, where she has mentored and tutored young students in an afterschool program since 2013. Tighe recently helped create a literacy curriculum for students in the program, and she has recruited, trained, and managed student volunteers from Clark. Tighe has also served as an intern at the Worcester Education Collaborative.  

Tighe earned her B.A. from Clark in 2017; she majored in International Development and Social Change and minored in Spanish. She is pursuing her master of arts in teaching through Clark’s Accelerated B.A./Master's Degree Program and expects to complete her degree in May. 

She plans to use the cash prize that comes with the Lund award to establish herself in a school district this year.
