Dallas attorney Stuart Bumpas will be honored with the University of Texas-Dallas' 2016 Ruth and Ken Altshuler Callier Care Award for his work in the community.
Bumpas, a longtime trustee of the Foundation for the Callier Center and Communication Disorders, will receive the award at the fifth annual Callier Cares Luncheon on April 19.
The award is given annually to a group or individual who has contributed to the betterment of the community and to advancing care for those with communication disorders. All proceeds from the award luncheon benefit patients in need through the Callier Care Fund.
“I’ve enjoyed watching Stuart’s life and career soar,” Ruth Altshuler, who has known Bumpas since he was a boy, said. “He has not only been an extremely successful lawyer and family man, he has served on many community boards and is a first-class citizen. The ‘boy next door’ is now a distinguished man, husband to Diane, and one of Ken’s and my dearest friends.”
Bumpas became a trustee at the Foundation in 1981. During more than 30 years on the board, he has participated in projects that have grown the Callier Center substantially, like when helped secure a grant for the Crystal Charity Ball – a catalyst in the group’s cochlear implant program in 1993.
