    The field of parole is both complex and demanding. Those of us who work in the field often do our work in a quiet and unassuming way. Naming an award for a member is the highest honor we can give, signifying that the person's contributions to the field have been exemplary. Bestowing our awards on members have become a primary and public means of acknowledging our members and our colleagues for their accomplishments in promoting understanding and heightening awareness of what we do.
