Smile when you hear her name

 

Those who have been close to Des Moines’ inner workings for the past few decades certainly knew Evelyn Davis, and knew her well. But for the many who simply continue to hear her name on the 10 o’clock news in association with violence in a park that bears her name, Evelyn Davis is a mystery.

In this week’s cover, we tell the story of Evelyn Davis so that each of you can have a better understanding of the positive impacts this woman had on so many people in our city. Central Iowans should smile when they hear her name, and this is our effort to help work toward accomplishing that.

Thanks for reading. CV
