This award honors the contribution of Eva Amundson, one of ORI’s founders and a long- serving member of the board. Early in our history, Eva did not accept the role that society had developed for individuals with developmental disabilities. The award honors her foresight, dedication and compassion; also her determination to include children with developmental disabilities and not to hide them.
The Eva Amundson Award is a Lifetime Achievement-type Award.
