Thomas Davon

photoMy name is Davon Thomas and I am the UC Santa Cruz Student Director. I am second-year History major from Sacramento, CA. Within Sacramento is an area called Oak Park, which is a low-income and minority dominated area. Growing up here has led me to be aware of my surroundings, my socio-economic status, my ethnicity, and so much more. My family is my biggest aspiration; they have pushed me to always be civically involved, to give back to my community, and to always aspire to be something greater than myself. My goal on the METRO board is to make sure students’ voices and concerns are heard and that we can implement different policies that create a sustainable transportation model for the County of Santa Cruz.
