The Minnesota chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) presented the Donald G. Padilla Distinguished Practitioner Award to Ted Davis, Principal at Davis Communications Management, during the 32nd annual Minnesota PRSA Classics Awards, held at International Market Square on Thursday, March 25th, 2010.

The Donald G. Padilla Distinguished Practitioner Award recognizes an individual who is judged to have made selfless contributions to the community and to the mission of PRSA, and who has demonstrated exceptional professional achievement.

In an editorial noting the award, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press wrote:

We offer a loud and lusty shout out to Ted Davis. He is in the biz of public relations and is being honored for his service to our community above-and-beyond his PR duties. His list of volunteer activities is impressive: American Red Cross, Serving Our Troops, the Lupus Foundation, the St. Paul Police Foundation, the St. Paul RiverCentre Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Midway Chamber of Commerce. Of such resumes are communities built. Way to go, Ted!
