Sgt. Rodney M. Davis, USMC (MOH) Memorial Scholarship Fund
In 1967, Sgt. Rodney M. Davis lunged atop an enemy grenade at the expense of his own life. He did so without hesitation to save the lives of his fellow Marines, and that speaks volumes about the man, his principles and his unflinching courage even in the face of certain death. This scholarship fund was established in honor of Macon’s only U.S. Marine Corps Medal of Honor winner, Sgt. Rodney M. Davis, who exemplified honor, courage, and commitment.
