Principal Ginny Davis is honored at Annual APSU Outstanding Alumni Awards Luncheon
Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tennessee, recently honored Ginny with the Outstanding Alumna Award for accomplishments in her profession, community, and support to her alma mater.
Ginny graduated cum laude from APSU with a Bachelor of Arts in geology and a minor in French in 1987. Her professional passion and acumen were evident throughout her university career, including her selection for the Oak Ridge Associated Universities student intern program, where she performed environmental and structural geology research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. In 1992, she received the university’s original Outstanding Young Alumna Award.
Ginny dedicated her award to the amazing educators in her life who made all the difference, starting with her mother, a retired teacher and administrator.
“When I took my first geology course at APSU, I knew I was hooked,” Ginny said in her acceptance speech during the university’s 2021 homecoming celebration. “University has an amazing way of getting to the core of what you’re passionate about. And APSU’s engaging professors introduced me to career possibilities I never even knew existed in environmental science. Their investment in me changed the entire trajectory of my life and career and is a primary reason why I’m a consulting geologist today, 34 years later.”
In August 1987, Ginny joined EnSafe and took on progressively complex project management for a wide array of environmental and hydrogeological problems. As project manager for two National Priorities List sites in Kentucky, Ginny has tackled all aspects of remedial investigation and feasibility study scoping and implementation, as well as subsequent remedial design and remedial action negotiations and delisting support.
Ginny also has extensive experience with complex hydrogeologic investigations and aquifer characterization in karst terrain, fractured and faulted sedimentary sequences, and deltaic and fluvial geologic settings. She is a licensed professional geologist in Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana and Wyoming.
Our warmest congratulations, Ginny, on this second Outstanding Alumna honor. Your continued investment in young professionals and the success of EnSafe is so important and we, at EnSafe, are fortunate to have such an “enthusiastic rock lover” as you in leadership.
