The President's Award honors an individual for unique, lifetime achievement in advancing the field of disabilities and disability services. The recipient of the 2014 ANCOR Foundation President’s Award is:
Charlie Lakin, Ph.D.
Recognized for his lifetime achievements in research, education and service, Dr. Lakin’s contributions to people with developmental disabilities and their families have advanced the field of disabilities. His ongoing commitment to ANCOR has moved us closer to a world in which the overwhelming majority of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities no longer live in institutions.
