The History of Nan Gray Davis Elementary

Nan Gray Davis School was organized in 1965. It is named in honor of Miss Nan Gray Davis.  Miss Davis began her career as an elementary teacher in Escambia County. In 1921, she came to teach at Theodore High School. In introducing her to the faculty, Principal F. W. Breitling, with whom Miss Davis had previously taught, made this prophetic remark, "For several years we have had quite a turn over in teacher personnel, but now I think we have a teacher who will stick". And "stick" she did for thirty-five years.  When Miss Davis retired in 1958, she continued her passion for teaching, always finding a child to coach, the maid or yardman with an educational problem, a Sunday School class in need of a teacher, or someone upon whom she could bestow the blessing of her teaching. After she was stricken with a heart attack, she taught lessons of patience, courage, hope and faith to those who ministered unto her. The gentle soul of Miss Nan Gray Davis passed away on January 30, 1963. Miss Nan Gray Davis' influence and love of teaching and learning still lives on at Nan Gray Davis.
