A TRIBUTE TO KEN FIELD:  Kenneth S. Field was born on March 31, 1918, in Duluth, MN.  He earned his bachelor’s degree in Management at the University of Minnesota, and an MBA at Syracuse University.  He went on to a brilliant career in Forensics.
 
Before coming to Colorado Springs, Ken was the director of the Federal Forensic Sciences Laboratory in Washington DC.  He moved the laboratory to Colorado Springs and ran it here until he retired in 1985. 
Ken was a member of the Academy of Forensic Sciences for 27 years, twice serving as the executive director.  He was a member of the editorial board of the academy’s journal and chairman of the group’s history committee, for whom he wrote the history of the academy.
The American Academy of Forensic Sciences is a multi-disciplinary professional organization that provides leadership to advance science and its application to the legal system. The Academy gives recognition to outstanding members in the field of forensics, with the “Kenneth S. Field Award of Appreciation for Outstanding Service.”
Candlelight vigil, survivor stories shine a light on the issue of modern slavery
By Arnold R. Grahl
 
If Rotary members had any doubt that human trafficking and modern slavery occur in the United States, Brad Myles, executive director and chief executive officer of Polaris, put that doubt to rest.

We are part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization dedicated to providing humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations, and helping to build goodwill and peace in the world.
