Special Agent in Charge Mary F. Rook is pleased to announce Reverend France A. Davis of Utah as the recipient of the 2013 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award for the Salt Lake City Division.

Reverend Davis has been making a difference in the Salt Lake City community for over 41 years. In the year that we honor the 50th anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Reverend Davis recalls how he marched for civil rights, met Dr. King, and followed his calling to spiritually lead others. That calling led him to Utah, where he has worked tirelessly with community leaders as an advocate for civil rights. As a mentor, he has been a great source of hope for youth by providing educational opportunities for African-American students through the Pastor France A. Davis Scholarship. His selfless acts of service and dedication to the community are expressed in his efforts to provide spirituality, social understanding, educational opportunities, housing, and friendship to those in need.

The FBI Salt Lake City Division will host a press event to honor Reverend France A. Davis on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the Calvary Baptist Church at 1090 S. State Street in Salt Lake City. At that time, FBI Special Agent in Charge Mary F. Rook will present Reverend Davis with the 2013 Director’s Community Leadership Award on behalf of the Director of the FBI James B. Corney.
