Queens president gets leader award

MeckMin, an interfaith group with about 100 member congregations, gave its community leader award Wednesday to Pamela Davies, president of Queens University of Charlotte. She was honored for her work at Queens and as a local, national and international board member with the YMCA. Davies quoted a Kenyan whose comment on Jesus’ Good Samaritan parable struck a chord: “If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together.” Tim Funk
