Monte V. Davis, Ph.D., was an emeritus professor of physics and nuclear engineering at Georgia Tech. He passed away in 2014; and his widow, Nancy E. Davis, established a fund through the Bent Tree Foundation in his memory to award grants to Pickens County teachers for projects in the S.T.E.M. program (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and to award scholarships to Pickens County graduating seniors who are pursuing degrees in S.T.E.M.-related fields. Two scholarships and three grants were awarded in 2016. Three scholarships and two grants plus partial funding for a third grant were awarded in 2017.
