Established in 1996 in honor of Al Davis, the school's long-time coach and physical education teacher, the Al Davis Teaching Award honors a teacher or administrator who exemplifies the virtues taught by Al: persistence, sacrifice for the greater good, and team spirit.
The Class of 1964 Al Davis Award
To that teacher who teaches what Al Davis taught us;
That we are all capable of great things,
but only with our fullest effort.
That full effort itself is a joyous act,
and transforms even failure into a kind of success.
That community is a precious thing.
That we are all individuals,
and that the highest act of an individual is to contribute to a team.
That teaching at its highest level transcends the walls of a classroom
and the demands of a curriculum, and is finally an act of
mutual respect, commitment and love.
