MISCELLANEOUS: September, 1997 - April, 1998 - Major Effort: In reference to an article from the Kansas City Times and St. Louis Post Dispatch circa April 15 and 17, 1998, more than 100 hours were spent to oppose application of American College of Forensic Examiners who wanted to offer Missouri’s first forensic science doctoral degree over the Internet. I recruited more than 60 highly respected forensic scientist-educators from throughout the US to write letters to the Missouri State Board of Higher Education (MSBHE) explaining why forensic science education is not adaptable to online learning. The effort was a success and the MSBHE did NOT accredit the internet forensic science doctoral degree program. February 2001 - July 2002 - Major Effort: 45


Forensic Science Educators Conference – STL I As President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) an Educational Initiative was begun, bringing together the AAFS, Saint Louis University and the Saigh Foundation of St. Louis to conduct a three day conference (July 25-27,2002) for high school science teachers. In December 2000, the TIMMS (Third International Mathematics and Science Survey) report was released that reported the results of science testing on children completing the 4th grade, 8th grade and 12th grades. The United States competed against 43 countries. In the 4th grade, US students were ranked in the highest quartile. In 8th grade, US students were at the 50% mark. At the end of 12th grade, students ranked in the lowest quartile of the 44 countries studied. Middle and high school students are currently enthralled with anything having to do with crime or forensic sciences, as noted by popular TV shows such as CSI, the Forensic Files, Crossing Jordan, etc. In an attempt to improve US students’ science knowledge, the Saigh Foundation will support this conference bringing together 40 St. Louis area high school science teachers who will receive Saigh scholarships to attend this conference. There will be 160 additional registrations available for science teachers nationwide for a nominal registration fee. This conference will feature AAFS speakers from 13 forensic science disciplines who will lecture on Day 1 and Day 2. Eight workshops will be held on Day 3 to assist the teachers develop lesson plans that they can immediately use to assist them in their science classes. The Saint Louis University Division of Forensic Pathology, Department of Anatomy, Department of Criminal Justice and Sociology, Departments of Orthodontics and Clinical Lab Science, as well as the Department of Chemistry have all agreed to collaborate with this effort. One hundred-forty (140) Metropolitan St. Louis Middle and High School Science Teachers, and Criminal Justice Students attended the three-day conference from July 25-27, 2002. April 2003 - July 2004 - Major Effort: Forensic Science Educators Conference – St. Louis II Three part, five-day conference conducted at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, July 19-24, 2004. This is a partnership between the Saigh Foundation who funded this activity with a $50,000 grant, the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and Saint Louis University School of Medicine. In an attempt to improve US students’ science knowledge, the Saigh Foundation supported this conference bringing together 50 St. Louis area high school science teachers who will receive Saigh scholarships to attend this conference. There were 150 additional registrations available for science teachers nationwide for a nominal registration fee. This conference featured local St. Louis AAFS speakers from various forensic science disciplines who lectured on Day 1 and Day 2. Ten workshops were held on Day 3 and Day 4 46


conducted by veteran, experienced high school forensic science teachers who assisted new science teachers use established lesson plans that they can immediately put into practice in their science classrooms. The Saint Louis University Division of Forensic Pathology, Department of Anatomy, Department of Criminal Justice and Sociology, Departments of Orthodontics and Clinical Lab Science, as well as the Department of Chemistry all collaborated with this effort. October 2005- July 2006 - Major Effort: Forensic Science Educators Advanced Conference – St. Louis III Three-day conference was conducted at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, July 24-26, 2006. This is a partnership between the Saigh Foundation who has funded this activity with a $50,000 grant to the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Approximately 115 high school and middle school teachers attended this conference. Sixty-nine St. Louis area teachers were provided full scholarships. The Graduate School of Education did accredit this conference for 2 hours of SLU graduate credit. In an attempt to improve US students’ science knowledge, the Saigh Foundation has supported these conferences for the past five years bringing together more than 100 St. Louis area high school science teachers who will receive Saigh scholarships to attend this conference. An additional 150 high school science teachers from throughout the United States have also attended the first two conferences for a nominal registration fee payable to the AAFS. Over the past five years, six other universities have followed our lead and conducted Forensic Science Educators basic conferences at Pace University in New York City (10/02), University of Texas at Arlington (10/03), Chaminade University of Honolulu (6/04), St. Louis University School of Medicine (7/04), Louisiana State University (11/04), West Virginia University (7/05) and Cedar Crest College (10/05). In May 2006 a basic course was conducted at Florida Gulf Coast University and in June 2006 Indiana University/Purdue University conducted a basic conference. Basic conferences at Michigan State and a second Chaminade University of Honolulu are planned for 2007. This was the first totally Advanced FSEC conducted. It featured AAFS members, Richard Saferstein, the #1 author of forensic science textbooks for high school students. He will introduce his 8th edition at our conference and provide a signed copy for each attendee. Also scheduled is Dr. Jan Garavaglia (a Saint Louis University Medical School graduate) who is “Dr. G” of the current, highly popular nationwide TV show. Other nationwide recognized experts spoke on the following topics: Polygraph, Profiling, Patterned Injuries, Forensic Analysis of Inks, Paint and Glitter, Worldwide Mass Casualty response, Forensic Science Teaching Resources (the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology and Law), Digital evidence, Forensic Engineering, The Daubert Decision, Forensic Nursing, Fire Science and Explosions and the CSI Effect.

The Saint Louis University Division of Forensic Pathology, Departments of Anatomy, Criminal Justice and Sociology, Graduate School and Clinical Lab Science all collaborated on this effort. July 2007 to July 2008 - Major Effort: Forensic Science Educators Advanced Conference – St. Louis IV – 2008 Saigh Grant funding of $15,000 was received on July 16, 2007 for the FSEC/STL IV conference held at Saint Louis University School of Medicine July 21-23, 2008. Because this was an 'advanced" course with emphasis on hands-on labs, registrations were limited to 75. All 75 slots were filled by the teachers from 32 metropolitan St. Louis high schools and middle schools who received full Saigh scholarships and additional teachers from outside the area and state. Tru TV also financially supported the conference. Four AAFS members spoke at the conference (Dr. Marcella Fierro, Dayle Hinman, Dr. Reena Roy and Mary Fran Ernst). Eight St. Louis areabased speakers completed the program. The conference was a total success as acclaimed by teacher evaluations. Society of Medicolegal Death Investigators (SOMDI) Efforts began in February, 2007 to create a professional medicolegal death investigator association. Advertised July, 2007 at Masters 12 Conference, the Oct. 2007 MLDI course, January, April and October 2008 MLDI courses and January, April and August 2009 MLDI courses and the July, 2009 Masters 13 Conference as well as the Sept. 14, 2009 NAME Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA and 2010 AAFS Annual meeting in Seattle, WA.
