University of Missouri alumnus Ron Ashworth has been honored with an Attorney General Honors Award. The award was recently launched to celebrate Missouri’s bicentennial and recognizes extraordinary citizens who go "above and beyond" to make Missouri a better place to live.
Ashworth serves on the Trulaske College of Business dean’s advisory board and is the board president for the Thompson Foundation for Autism. He recently had an endowed professorship named after him in honor of his advocacy for neurodevelopmental disability issues and the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders.
