News and Stories
Dr. Stanley J. Miedich
May 18, 1929 -- October 14, 2018
 
 

Dr. Stanley Jacob Miedich, 89, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, passed away peacefully in his home on October 14, 2018. Stan was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Charles, and his beloved wife, Louise (nee Hagen), of 54 years. Stan is survived by his son Carl and daughter-in-law Lisa, grandchildren Kathryn, Matthew and Nicholas, and great-grandchildren Wesley, Madison and Gabriel. He was greatly loved and will be forever missed by his family and friends.

Stan was born on May 18, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY to Karol and Mary (nee Cerar) Miedich. He served in the US Air Force for more than 20 years, retiring in 1968 as a Major. During the Vietnam War he directed the audio-visual activities of hundreds of combat cameramen and received the Bronze Star. Stan obtained a Doctorate in Finance and Business Policy from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 1980 and pursued a second career as a university professor at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and in Europe for Troy State University, before retiring in 1992.  He authored numerous finance articles and books, including Compassionate Capitalism and Moral Economic Policies, which is currently available on Amazon.

Stan was a member of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs for 23 years, receiving the Paul Harris Fellow Award. He was a true gentleman, known and loved for his kind and charitable nature. Stan enjoyed dancing, church and social activities, and discussing finance with his many friends. He traveled extensively, achieving in recent years his goal of visiting all of the Earth’s continents.

A memorial service will be held on November 16, 2018, at 2:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 219 E. Bijou St., Colorado Springs. Memorial contributions may be made to the Rotary Foundation (https://www.rotary.org/en/donate).

   
 

 

 
Each year Rotary Prime volunteers with Cougar’s Care, a program at Coronado High School providing support to students in need, during their Thanksgiving project where they provide a weeks-worth of food to families of the school. This year we will be volunteering on Nov 16th and 17th and would also like to ask for assistance from Rotary with a Canned Food Drive.
 
Please bring in non-perishable food/cans to Friday Meetings from October 19th – November 9th. All items collected will be dropped off at Coronado High School on November 16th when they sort and pack the boxes.
 
If you would like to join us in volunteering you can also meet at Coronado on Nov 16th from 3 – 5 pm to fill the boxes or Nov 17th from 7 am – 11:30 am to load the boxes into families cars.

Hi All,
 
I hope you all are having a lovely fall. It's sunny and warm here in Sierra Leone with the rains passing and the dry season commencing. 
 
Thanks to the clubs posting my last email about the work I am doing in Sierra Leone, a fellow Rotarian Howard Winfield from the Towcester Rotary Club in the UK reached out to me see if his club might be able to support some of the work we are doing for women and children. 
 
I just spoke with him by phone and am hoping Partners  in Health and his club can collaborate on a project. I feel fortunate to still be so connected to the Rotary family and am so pleased to see the connections I made continuing to enrich the work in my career. 
 
Also, if you're interested my colleague and dear friend Dr. Marta Lado was recently featured on the PIH blog here about her work during the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Thought you might find it interesting! I work with Ebola survivors here in Sierra Leone even now, their an incredible group of people who are always inspiring. 
 
Thanks to you and hope all is well!
Jourdan
