Kansas University's Beach Center on Disability received a major research honor on Saturday for its work to improve quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities and their families. Pictured Tuesday at the Beach Center are Mary-Margaret Simpson, editor, left, and Martha Blue-Banning, research associate. Blue-Banning, who has worked at the center for seven years, attended the convention and accepted the award. "It was an honor being there. It was just so energizing," she said.
