Davison (DTV) Juniors and Seniors of Davison High were faced with the harsh reality of distracted driving. On May 2nd, alum Kacie Love had put together a mock crash to show these driving students what could happen with just one look at a cell phone. With the help of a few friends from the Davison police, fire and EMT departments she got this whole idea underway. To see the full story, follow the link below.

DAVISON (DTV) (05/24/2018) – Wednesday, May 23rd was the last day for seniors at Davison High School. The seniors participated in a Davison tradition by taking a walk “back in time” through the halls of Thomson Elementary School. It was followed by several performances and a slideshow of memories in the DHS auditorium. Their presence is already missed, and the hallways seem much quieter.
