Empowering Communities Through Service and Innovation

Empowering Communities Through Service and Innovation

In fraternities, young men often seek change in themselves through those around them; others have been living out their organization’s values long before joining, becoming a pillar for those seeking change. Solomon Davis, Missouri ’20, is one such individual whose dedication to serving his community and professional growth made him a leader who has brought honor and pride to Phi Delta Theta.

Solomon’s journey with Phi Delta Theta began with curiosity. As Phi Delta Theta expanded to his school, he felt the sense of community fostered by the Fraternity and became one of the founding fathers of his re-installed chapter. Phi Delta Theta gave Soloman a platform for giving back to the community after becoming Missouri Alpha’s Co-Service Committee chair, inspired and driven by the principle that “To whom much is given, much will be required.”

Solomon worked to enhance the Fraternity’s approach to leadership; instead of running against one another for positions, he would get his brothers to support a change to co-chairs, not limiting what one person can achieve. With his co-chair, Ben Schenelle, ’20, established partnerships with local organizations. He introduced initiatives, such as the community partners program. Partners such as the VA Hospital, the Optimist Club, and the City of Refuge fostered regular service opportunities and enabled mutual support for his chapter. Additionally, these partnerships provided brothers with opportunities aligned with their academic and professional interests, further bridging the gap between academic requirements and community engagement.

“Being a member of Phi Delta Theta transcends the stereotypical fraternity experience. It means being surrounded by men who inspire personal and professional growth, value friendship, and are committed to making a positive impact.”

After graduation, Solomon’s path led him to further his professional growth and development opportunities. Enrolling in the experience lab program at UC Berkeley and the University of Pennsylvania and interning at Go Logic Solutions, he gained insight into the intersection of technology and business, particularly in supporting small enterprises disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Solomon’s passion for empowering small businesses was ignited during this time, laying the groundwork for his future endeavors.

In November 2020, Solomon took a step forward and founded S Davis Consulting, aiming to address the challenges these businesses faced in navigating the digital landscape. His work, while impactful, is characterized more by its steady progress and dedication rather than any revolutionary breakthroughs. Solomon has made a significant difference through his consultancy, helping numerous businesses adapt and thrive in an ever-changing environment, leveraging his expertise to support their growth and sustainability.

Shortly after, Solomon implemented customer-facing and internal technologies to support growth. He introduced an omnichannel sales experience, significantly enhancing his client’s service capabilities and customer engagement with excellent returns on sales. Using technology that allowed its customers to order food with a TikTok shop and an AI-chat bot.

Despite his remarkable professional success, Solomon remains humble, staying true to the values instilled through Phi Delta Theta. For him, being a member of Phi Delta Theta is about more than recognition, popularity, or accomplishments; it’s about fostering meaningful connections, continuously learning, and making a positive impact in the world. Being entrusted by his clients to engineer solutions for their businesses or organizations is a privilege.
