The Viscardi Center<http://www.henryviscardischool.org/>, a teaching community that creates supportive and challenging learning environments and offers integrated community-based services for students with physical disabilities, has announced the creation of a unique awards program to identify and recognize exemplary leaders in the disability community who have had a profound impact on shaping attitudes, raising awareness and improving the quality of life of people with disabilities. These awards are designed to acknowledge influential individuals with disabilities who serve as leaders, mentors and role models and are dramatically improving the lives of people in the disability community on a broad scale," said John D. Kemp, president and CEO of The Viscardi Center. "We are conducting an international search for contemporary figures who, like Dr. Viscardi, are leading by example."
Individuals of any age, with any type of disability, are eligible. Nominations will be considered from many walks of life, including but not limited to business, innovation, education, military, health care, nonprofit, entertainment, athletics, government, public service, and emerging leaders. A Selection Committee consisting of notable public figures from the U.S. and abroad who have fought for the rights of others with disabilities is being assembled. The committee, co-chaired by former U.S. Senator Robert Dole and Academy Award winning actress Marlee Matlin, also includes Dr. Viscardi's daughter, Nina Viscardi; Cari Dominguez, former Chair, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; Rohini Anand, Chief Diversity Officer, Sodexo; Col.
