Lucas Davis Receives Brady Award

By: Lisa S. Icenogle

Lucas Davis, a 2015 graduate of Campbell County High School, was recently selected as the 2017 recipient of the Jon E. Brady Award in Political Study at Casper College, where he is a political science major.

Davis is the 16th recipient of the annual award, according to Erich Frankland, political science instructor. Following Casper College Davis plans to attend law school and “prepare myself to be an effective citizen and participant in the political process and to engage the politically apathetic, empower the disenfranchised, and challenge the establishments, which maintain their control through the blind trust of the controlled.”

“In the classroom, Lucas is an eager participant in class discussion and always raises the level of discourse between students. His questions and comments display a real enthusiasm for learning, as well as a true understanding of the subject areas,” said Douglas Hall, communication instructor and director of forensics. “I have been very impressed with Mr. Davis in my time with him and am excited to see his impact moving forward,” he added.

Jordan Johnson, communication instructor and assistant director of forensics said that she was most impressed by Lucas’ desire to use his knowledge as a tool for advocacy. “Lucas is an exceptional and engaged student who is passionate about impacting the world,” she said.

“Having had Lucas in several classes I would completely agree with Doug and Jordan’s comments,” said Frankland.

Past recipients of the award include Charity LaFountain in 2014, Mickala Schmidt in 2015, and Elizabeth Walsh in 2016. The award is named after Jon E. Brady, instructor emeritus of political science at Casper College.
