Scott Davidson Becomes Chairman Of The Board Of Trustees At Florida United Methodist Children’s Home

On the Move

 
 
Enterprise, FL – The Florida United Methodist Children’s Home announces that Scott Davidson has been elected as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Davidson made his first impact on the Children’s Home in 2006 when he was asked to step in as the interim CEO, a position he served in for six months. In 2013, he was asked to return to the Children’s Home to assist with the construction of the new Madison Youth Ranch in north Florida. At that time, Davidson brought more than 22 years of experience and leadership in business and civil engineering with his background as a former principal and vice president of Ardaman and Associates, a consulting firm specializing in geotechnical engineering. He is also a past president of the Florida Engineering Society. 

Once the Madison Youth Ranch’s initial construction was completed, Davidson joined the Board of Trustees at the Children’s Home and has served in various positions on the Board over the years before becoming the Chairman. At the same time he was serving as a Trustee for the Children’s Home, Davidson was named interim president to the Florida United Methodist Foundation while they searched for a permanent president.

“I’m very proud of the passionate and professional leadership team at the Children’s Home,” said Davidson. “I believe the Children’s Home is uniquely positioned to serve more children and families in more ways and more places in Florida.”

Davidson has served as the chairman of the United Methodist Florida conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits, as treasurer of the East Central District of the Florida conference, and as Chairman of the Board of ZOE Ministries. ZOE works with orphaned children and youth in Africa and India through an innovative three year empowerment program. He has also served as Vice Chairman of Agua Viva Serves, a nonprofit clean water ministry in Costa Rica.

Davidson earned his graduate and undergraduate degrees in civil engineering from Georgia Tech and a master’s degree in business administration from Rollins College in Winter Park.

Currently, the Children’s Home cares for over 500 children daily through residential, foster care, and independent living programs.
