Angele Davis '90
National Alumni Association
Meet Angele Davis, President of the Spring Hill College National Alumni Association Board (NAAB) and member of the College’s Board of Trustees. A graduate of the Class of 1990, she is a dedicated public servant, a leader in her community and mom to a seven-year old.
Davis attended Spring Hill on a basketball scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. She credits her educational and spiritual journey at Spring Hill College with providing an extraordinary foundation for what would later become a lifelong commitment of service to others.
After graduation, Davis earned a Master of Business Administration at Louisiana State University and went on to serve as Louisiana’s Commissioner of Administration, Chief Financial Officer to the Governor and Chief Administrative Officer for the State. She entered the private sector when she founded The Davis Kelley Group, where she serves as the President and CEO, leading the firm’s operations and working with clients to solve complex strategic and operational problems.
“Spring Hill College gave me the opportunity to become a leader and serve others while pursuing my education. My time on The Hill helped me to build upon and nurture my Catholic faith and continued to strengthen my relationship with God. The faculty gave me the knowledge and experience to succeed professionally — to become a responsible leader in service to others — this foundation prepared me well for my career in public service,”
Perhaps the greatest example of Davis’ characteristic leadership in service to others is her work with Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Baton Rouge, a journey that began when she and her husband adopted their son through the organization seven years ago. She fell in love with Catholic Charities’ mission to build families through adoption and worked to give back by expanding Sanctuary for Life, a haven for pregnant, unmarried women living on the streets. With Davis’ help, the organization doubled their capacity to care for these women in a home that keeps them and their unborn babies safe while providing medical care, social services and counseling.
When floods devastated southeast Louisiana last year, Davis was serving as chair of the Catholic Charities Board. Hundreds of thousands of families’ homes were flooded and many lost everything. Davis was instrumental in the disaster recovery efforts as Catholic Charities responded by coordinating volunteers and warehouse spaces, accepting and distributing donations and providing disaster case management services to those in need. She also rolled up her sleeves to gut houses and help her community recover from overwhelming loss.
Davis’ dedication to her community – both professionally and privately – is an example of what happens on The Hill each day. She said, “For me, Spring Hill College was an excellent choice for my spiritual and academic growth and for my career success. Hopefully, it will become a family tradition!”
