LDS State Ed Board Member Resigns To Serve Welfare Mission
(Idaho ed board member Harold Davis to resign)

BOISE, IDAHO -- LDS Church member Harold Davis of Idaho Falls is resigning from the Idaho State Board of Education to work for the LDS Church as a welfare representative in the Phillipines. Davis, 70, submitted his resignation to Idaho Governor Dirk Kempthorne on Tuesday, May 9th, and expects to leave effective June 26th.

Davis, who is majority owner of Electrical Wholesale Supply in Idaho Falls, was recently re-appointed to the eight-member board for a second five-year term. He says that he spoke with the governor at that time about the possibility that he would resign sooner.

Davis told the Spokane Spokesman-Review that he has been called to serve as assistant area welfare agent in Manila for 18 months. He will enter the Senior Missionary Training Center in Provo on June 27th. His wife, Enid, who will serve with him, is a license counselor and social worker, and will resign her position on the state Counselor Licensing Board.

"Our focus is to help the Philippine people in areas of employment and humanitarian needs," Davis wrote in his resignation letter to the Governor. The Davis served a similar mission for the Church to Romania from 1990 to 1992.
