Certificate of Recognition
 
During the 2016 Legislative Session, I was able to successfully lobby for a $1 million grant from the House of Representatives to the New Hanover County Board of Education to help with the planning and design phase for a Career-Technical Education (CTE) high school to be located on the north campus of Cape Fear Community College.
 
This new school will help students earn industry certification and credentials in addition to their high school diplomas.  The school plans to have 9 different program areas and 78 different career pathways that students will be able to choose from.  By graduation, each student will have a diploma, certificate or degree in his/her chosen field, industry credentials and financial literacy.
 
At the September 6th meeting of the New Hanover County Board of Education, I  received a Certificate of Recognition for my assistance with this project.

My personal highlight came on June 16 when I again was allowed the honor and opportunity to serve as the speaker of the House during the Session that day. Riding in the 2016 Azalea Festival with Grandson Tee.
This year, the NC Travel & Tourism Coalition chose 4 Legislators to receive their inaugural “Tourism Champion” award in recognition of outstanding support for the tourism industry, which employs more than 200,000 people and generates over $3.2 billion in State and Local taxes.  I am very honored to have been chosen as 1 of the 4 initial recipients of this award.  During the 2015 Session, I worked very hard to obtain the increased funding for the film grant; to insure that the integrity of the room occupancy tax was kept intact; and to support other legislation that benefited the travel and tourism business in North Carolina.  I was presented the award in Wrightsville Beach, NC by Kim Hufham, President/CEO of the Wilmington and Beaches Convention Visitor Bureau.

Legislative Award

I am a recipient of the Co-Defender of Occupancy Tax Integrity award from the North Carolina Travel Industry Association for my work as Chairman of the Finance Committee Occupancy Tax Subcommittee during the 2015 Legislative Session to protect the travel industry and to defend against the improper use of local occupancy taxes across North Carolina.  The award was presented in Charlotte and I am very appreciative of this recognition.
Legislative Recognition

I was presented with a recognition and sincere appreciation plaque from the Wilmington City Council for dedicated service and representation to the citizens of Wilmington during the 2015 Legislative Session.  I enjoyed working on various pieces of legislation that benefited the City of Wilmington and I am very appreciative of this recognition. Dreams Contribution

Dreams is a wonderful organization located in Wilmington that allows underprivileged children to experience and be involved with dance, music and the arts.  When John Lyons with AT&T gave me the opportunity to direct a $1,000 contribution to any non-profit that I felt worthy, I immediately thought of Dreams because of the joy that it has brought to children not only in my District 19 but all of New Hanover County.  I thank John for allowing me to be a part of this well-deserved presentation to the members of the Dreams Board.
I was the recipient of the North Carolina Land Trust “Legislator of the Year” for my work on the Venus Fly Trap Legislation.  I received a wonderful picture of the City of Wilmington as viewed from the Cape Fear River.

Serving as Speaker of the House Sept. 16, 2015
Rep. Ted Davis, Jr. with United States Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke On August 3, I attended the Kick Off Event for the Cape Fear Opioid Overdose Quick Response Team at the Wilmington City Hall and had an opportunity to discuss why I supported this project and what I did to obtain the necessary funding so the project could go forward.
It was my pleasure to attend the 2018 Cape Fear Purple Heart Dinner on Saturday night. What a wonderful way to honor Purple Heart recipients, their families and Gold Star Mothers. I would like to thank Chairman Sheriff Ed McMahon for this inspirational event honoring the brave men and women who have so valiantly served our country. During the 2018 Short Session, the requested appropriation was included in the budget discussions by the Appropriations Committee for Justice and Public Safety, which I am a Chairman.  I was very persistent in lobbying for these funds, and I was very pleased when both my Committee and the full Appropriations Committee approved funding in the amount of $2,300,000.
On August 21, 2018, I attended a presentation on behalf of the seven search and rescue teams across the State, which included a demonstration of the various equipment that has been and will be purchased with the $2,300,000.  I was also very honored to receive an award for my efforts in obtaining this funding. The Salvation Army is such a wonderful Christian organization. I helped them to distribute supplies, which included clean-up kits, brooms, mops, tarps, food boxes, water, hygiene items, and infant items. All of the volunteers were so friendly and respectful of the individuals that came for help, and those who received the supplies were thankful to get them.

When I was giving out hygiene supplies, I took the opportunity to speak to as many of the recipients as possible, thanked them for coming, and wished them the best. Once again, so many different people coming together to help those victims of the Hurricane in need. Yet another example of why I am so proud that I am from and live in New Hanover County.
