Testimonials

  • LA was one of the greatest things in my development as a leader and a new person in the Community. It challenged me about what I had assumed about myself and why I needed the others that were in this class with me! The number of times I have called on my classmates since my May graduation is too many to recall. EVERY one in that room I now consider leaders that will attack the issues that must be addressed!

  • Leadership Albany is among the most comprehensive community leadership training programs available from anywhere I have worked and lived. The curriculum provides a thorough education about community government, industry, services, business, and education. Program class members are a foundation of professional networking that fosters relationships throughout the community."

  • "Leadership Albany empowers relationships, networking and learning beyond the "typical" leadership courses. I was probably one of the few people that was "familiar" with each of subject days; but there was not one day that I did not walk away with greater understanding. This program provides a pathway to connect deeper in the community and provides fundamental skills that are transferable to any environment or any locale."

LA 2017 - MEET THE CLASS: HARRY DAVIS, JR.

 | Published on 8/8/2016
HARRY DAVIS, JR.
US Marine Corps Systems Command
Logistics Team Manager

Harry Davis Jr believes that helping others is one secret to alleviating stress.

 

“I really enjoy helping out where I can, and I look for opportunities to be of assistance to others,” he says. “I believe if more people were humble and embodied the servant attitude, there would be less pain in this world.”

 

A logistics manager with Marine Corps Logistics Base, Albany, Harry takes pride in a job well done, professionally, effectively, and efficiently. He enlisted in the Marines in 1980, and has served in numerous capacities, including an officer, before becoming a civilian Marine. He has been at MCLB Albany since September 2008.

 

“I am proud of my service to my family, my country, and my Corps.”

 

An avid runner – he has a dream of running a marathon in every state and has accomplished 16 already – he also finds motivation in his church, faith, volunteering, and mentoring young men from various socio-economic backgrounds, teaching them skills to enable them to become well-mannered boys and, eventually, successful men in society. The “Boys To Men” program is part of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where Harry is an active member. He also serves with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., an opportunity that has opened his eyes to a number of service activities that allow him yet another outlet to contribute to the greater Albany community, he says.

 

Born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, into a family of nine children, Harry and his wife have two children and have raised a granddaughter who is now off at college in Orlando. 

 

“I think it’s very important to maintain close family bonds because it gives us a sense of belonging and responsibility.”
