Eva Amundson Award

        Congratulations to the 2019 Eva Amundson Award Winner: 

Greg Ragee

                                    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.


                                            2015 Winner - Lori Cummings, Owner, Quality Maintenance Enterprises
