Mozelle Davis holds an award presented to her husband, Vyrle Davis, right, a longtime educator in St. Petersburg. He was honored Thursday during "A Night of Stars and Scholars" at Academy Prep Center. Davis shared the spotlight with the Rotary Club — a civic organization he has been involved in for decades. A host of Rotarians and other Pinellas County educators were present for the rededication of the Vyrle Davis Commons Room. Jim Thompson, Rotary president, was a student at St. Petersburg High when Davis was the school's principal. The event also featured student presentations and a tour of Academy Prep, at 2301 22nd Ave. S.
