Rose Davis of Rebuild Upstate wins National Award

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Rebuild Upstate’s Community Engagement Director Rose Davis has been awarded the National Jefferson Award through Multiplying Good’s Upstate Changemakers Program.

For more than 50 years, the Jefferson Awards have been the highest and most prestigious honor recognizing public service and dedication to servant leadership in the United States. The awards are committed to highlighting the people in our communities who “multiply good.” Recipients of the Jefferson Awards are empowered to keep making a difference, and their stories of exceptional public service inspire others to action. 

Rebuild Upstate serves low-income homeowners by making repairs and accessibility improvements to create safe, livable housing in existing homes and neighborhoods in Greenville, Anderson, Pickens, and Oconee counties. Davis has played an integral role in Rebuild Upstate’s growth over the past three years she’s been with the local nonprofit, raising funds and facilitating community outreach for Rebuild Upstate’s home repair program. 

“Because of Rose’s commitment, we have been able to do more repairs and help more families feel safe in their home,” said Jake Beaty, CEO of Rebuild Upstate. “This award is well deserved.”
