This week’s volunteer of the week is a special addition!
Akilah Davis works early mornings for WICS-TV News channel 20, and the Good Day Illinois broadcast reporting some of the biggest stories to viewers across Illinois.
When she isn’t reporting the news, Akilah spends time giving back to the community in any way she can. Since coming to Springfield from the Quad Cities she has become a Volunteer with the Boys and Girls Club of Central Illinois and continues to share her time with the children there.
As if volunteering her time to children isn’t impressive enough Akilah also finds time to emcee important events across the community. Lucky for us here at Serve Illinois we have had the privilege of having Akilah volunteer her time and emcee for our Recognition Day event for the past two years. Having her take the time to recognize National Service members, bring added recognition to our event, and genuinely care about volunteerism efforts is a beautiful thing. We can’t thank her enough!
