Panhandle State Communications on 05/10/2022 Whitney Davis Whitney Davis

Senior Whitney Davis is from Johnson, Kansas, but has her eyes set on bigger places. Upon graduating from Panhandle State, Whitney will be moving to Orlando, Florida, to participate in the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World.

“Whitney is an excellent student worker in the Communications Department. Her talent excels beyond an easel and a camera. She is always willing to help with whatever I ask of her. She has been the running force behind the University Tik-Tok account and has helped with several events across campus,” said Natasha Eidson, Director of Communications.

Davis will graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in Photography. She will also be graduating with honors, Magna Cum Laude. She is the Cheer Team Captain and is also Vice-President of the Images Art Club.

Being close to home is what drew Davis into coming to Panhandle State. “The art department was another reason I chose to come to Panhandle because of how great the department was and how it made this campus feel like a family,” she said.

Among the many things Davis accounts for being her favorites at Panhandle State, she listed two that was top on her list. “The lifelong friendships I have made with so many people, and how everyone is so quick to lend a helping hand no matter what.”

Her hobbies primarily include anything to do with art. “I have been an artist my whole life, and I am very excited to graduate as a first-generation student being able to pursue my passions.”
