LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A woman known as a champion for people with autism has been chosen to receive a Presidential Medal from the University of Louisville.

The school says Sandy Metts Snowden will receive the award from UofL President James Ramsey on Wednesday.

Another recipient will be the WHAS Crusade for Children.

The prize goes to those who have made significant impacts on the university and community.

Snowden has worked to improve services for people with autism. She is a former member of UofL's Board of Trustees and is owner and president of a real estate sale, management and brokerage firm.

Ramsey is recognizing the WHAS Crusade for Children for its 60-plus years of public service and for raising more than $160 million since its inception.
