Calvin Arthur Covell Award
The C.A. Covell Award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding service to the community, over time, in a number of areas. Initiated by L.N. Irwin, it was first awarded in 1944 to C.A. Covell, longtime mayor of Davis, for whom the award is named. Criteria for selection, as suggested by Irwin, are the following:
- Leadership in civic activities
- Unselfish service to the community
- Reliability in following through on commitments
- Involvement in a variety of activities
How can I nominate someone?
Nominations are typically due in October of each year.
To make a nomination, please visit the Covell & Brinley Awards Nomination webpage.
How are the nominees selected?
A committee of residents representing various activities in Davis — a different committee each year — will then select the recipients. The awards will be announced in late November, and they will be presented at the Davis Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner in January.
