Dr. David James Jackson Davidson IV, who received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Arcadia University in February, received the A. Richard Polis Graduate Scholarship Award at Commencement on May 20.

The Polis award is given each year to a student in a full-time program who is on the Graduate Dean’s Distinguished Honor List and whose service to the University and to his or her academic program distinguishes him or her from others in the cohort. The Award is named in honor of A. Richard Polis who served with extreme distinction as graduate dean for 20 years.

“Jay exemplifies the spirit that Richard Polis’s leadership brought to the Arcadia graduate programs… excellence as a student, scholarly achievement, and most importantly active contributions to the world around him,” said Dr. John Hoffman, Dean of the College of Business, Health and Sciences.
