Date:2/15/2008

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The AMERIGROUP Foundation today announced that Senator Robert Duncan of Lubbock has been honored with its "Champion for Children" award.

The award is part of the AMERIGROUP Foundation's national program recognizing outstanding public advocacy efforts by government and community leaders in improving the health and well-being of the nation's children.

"Our goal is to work together with local leaders and citizens for the benefit of healthier communities, and that starts with children," said Aileen McCormick, CEO of AMERIGROUP Community Care in Texas. "Senator Duncan and his efforts represent terrific examples of what we can all accomplish when we keep the end result in mind. His commitment to improving the Texas Medicaid system to encourage efficiency and preventive care offers a great example of how Texas can meet the critical goals of managing cost while also helping to improve the health of our children through innovative programs. We're thrilled to recognize Senator Duncan for his work, and we're equally excited to witness achievements that will assist in making our kids and communities healthier."

To commemorate Senator Duncan's commitment to children and their families, a $2,500 Foundation check will be presented to the South Plains Children's Shelter during a reception at the facility. Since 1978, South Plains Children's Shelter has provided assistance to children who are victims of abuse. Since then, a yearly average of 100 victims of physical, sexual and emotional abuse have been served by the shelter.

Senator Duncan said he is honored by the award and appreciative of the Foundation's support of the South Plains Children's Shelter.

"The AMERIGROUP Foundation's commitment and contributions focused on encouraging healthy families and communities have been tremendous," Duncan said. "I appreciate the support of great organizations like the South Plains Children's Shelter that positively impact so many lives in our community."
