Students throw congratulatory parade

(Continued)

The IASP cited Davis' attributes including:

- Davis visits each class at the beginning of the school year. "He strives to have a personal connection with each of his students." He eats with each student twice each year.

- Davis dresses up as Johnny Appleseed and retells the character's life story each March. He also dresses like the Cat in the Hat and reads Dr. Seuss books to students.

- The Pendleton school has a connection with Riley Hospital Kids Caring and Sharing Program, and Davis has been active with Riley for 18 years. "His hope is that the students grow by learning to give without expecting anything in return."

- As reward for meeting annual goals, Davis has been known to takes pies in the face, kiss a pig, sleep on the school roof, get duct-taped to the wall and let students throw water balloons at him.
