It is my honor to nominate Parish President Kevin Davis for this distinguished recognition.  In the past decade Kevin has exemplified the true meaning of a hero for our community and its residents.  Kevin’s involvement runs the gamut from projects that enhance our quality of life, to national level representation, garnering support for residents in need.  Some examples of such projects are development of the St. Tammany Trace, establishment of the Commission on Cultural Affairs and the Annual President’s Arts Awards, and development of a strategic plan to successfully protect Lake Pontachatrain during the recent oil spill. In both the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the more recent Gulf oil spill, Kevin proved his dedication to the people of St. Tammany Parish, through his relentless efforts to protect and rebuild our community.  Because of his invaluable leadership, tremendous vision and relentless tenacity, the residents of Slidell and St. Tammany have not only survived, but have thrived.  We are proud to call him our hero.
