Jack C. Davis was recently honored, as a member of the Blue Ribbon Committee to Keep GM, with the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Community Service Pioneer Award.  The LRCC has only given out this award five times in its 115-year history.  The Blue Ribbon Committee, a coalition of community and business leaders, was responsible for efforts to save General Motors’ presence in the Greater Lansing area in the 1990s. Not only were their heroic efforts successful in keeping GM in Lansing, the automaker eventually invested billions of dollars to renovate the Lansing Grand River assembly plant and construct the new Lansing Delta Township production plant. Today, those plants are the most advanced, state-of-the-art auto manufacturing facilities in the world, and produce some of General Motors’ best- selling vehicles.  Congratulations, Jack!
