ASU-Beebe “Life as a Vanguard” series introduces Jacey Davis
Jacey Davis is a sophomore, who will graduate in December with an Associate of Fine Arts in theater. Additionally, Jacey will serve as the student speaker for the ASU-Beebe Virtual Commencement Ceremonies this fall.
“I initially chose ASU-Beebe because it is close to home and located in the town that I love and grew up in,” said Jacey. However, she was already familiar with the college through concurrent coursework she took while in high school. “It was an easy decision for me to enroll at ASU-Beebe after graduation, since I had taken multiple classes from the time I was 14 years old,” said Jacey.
Jacey’s parents are Jason and Katy Davis and her twin brother Ethan also attends ASU-Beebe and her sister Kacey is taking ASU-Beebe concurrent coursework.
A graduate of Rose Bud High School, Jacey was active in the FFA while in high school. “I enjoyed competing on the floriculture team each year during Ag Day,” said Jacey. “I had heard about ASU-Beebe through my dad and uncle who attended here and my grandfather coached the rodeo team years ago.”
In addition to her academics, Jacey has been busy on campus. She serves as vice president of the Ag Club, managed the social media for the Theater Department, and served on the Student Activities Council and Marketing Outreach. Jacey was also nominated for Harvest Royalty this fall.
While at ASU-Beebe, Jacey was able to explore a couple of different majors before deciding on Fine Arts in theater. Jacey participated in the productions ‘Pipe Dream,’ ‘Is He Dead,’ ‘Porcelain and Pink,’ and ‘WCKY’ shows. “ASU-Beebe theater encouraged growth and learning new skills,” said Jacey. She plans a career as either an agriculture brand manager or a theater instructor.
After graduation, Jacey plans to transfer to Arkansas State University in Jonesboro to pursue an Agriculture Studies degree with communication emphasis. “ASU-Beebe has guided me in my educational journey by helping me understand who I am and where I fit in the world. Education is not about how fast you travel; It is about the journey.”
Jacey said her favorite place on campus is the theater. “So much creativity is inspired by that space,” said Jacey. “My favorite memories are from having lunch in the cafeteria, studying in the library, having coffee in the Owen Center Coffee Shop and attending the dances and other student activities.”
When asked about advice for other students, Jacey said: “Get involved. Student government was so fun and it will help connect you with your peers.”
Life as a Vanguard is a social media series produced by the ASUB Office of Marketing and Public Relations. These are ‘get to know’ articles of interest about students, faculty, and staff within the Vanguard campus community.
