The Arc honors Ken Ulman with its President's Award

Joseph V. Murray Sr., president of the board of directors of the Arc of Howard County, has presented the 2008 President's Award to County Executive Ken Ulman.

The award recognizes a person who has made a significant impact on the quality of life of children and adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities.

Ulman was selected because of his support for human service organizations in Howard County, including the Arc.

The Arc of Howard County provides housing, employment services and individual and family support programs to people with cognitive and developmental disabilities and their families.

Doug Ulman, president and chief executive officer of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, has received the Austin Business Journal's Health Care Hero award in the public health category.

The award programs honor individuals, organizations and companies for their contributions to improving health care in central Texas.

Ulman, who founded the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults in Columbia and is a cancer survivor, was selected by a panel of judges from a pool of more than 45 nominations. The nomination highlighted Ulman's work with the Lance Armstrong Foundation in educating children and adults about cancer prevention and treatment and the challenges faced by cancer survivors.

Under Ulman's leadership, the foundation's annual budget has grown from $2 million to nearly $40 million. The nominees and winners were recognized at an awards breakfast in Austin, Texas.
