Maria Ragland Davis, 50, an associate professor of biology, was one of three professors killed on Friday, February 12, 2010 in the tragic shooting at the University of Alabama at Huntsville. She had been with the University since 2002.

Mrs. Davis was raised in the church and was a member of the Plymouth United Church of Christ in Detroit, Michigan. Her religious upbringing deepened her faith in and love for the Lord. She demonstrated her faith in her daily life through her commitment to her family, friends, students and colleagues.
