Connie Maxwell Christmas
Connie Maxwell Christmas started as a way to thank the Greenwood community and supporters of Connie Maxwell. The event has grown in popularity, with more than 20,000 people visiting the campus each year.
The Connie Maxwell farm at OASIS —Outdoor Adventures Specifically Involving Students— was approved by the Board of Trustees in 1998. In January 2001, the first OASIS program director was hired.
Dr. Ben Davis first became part of the Connie Maxwell family in 1994 as vice president for development. In 2002, he was named president and served for another 12 years. Dr. Ben Davis dramatically improved the organization’s facilities, expanded services, and increased access for children and families in need. He retired on September 1, 2014.
