TALLAHASSEE — A Lee County leader in the fight against human trafficking and the founder of what is now Daytona State Colleg are both being added today to the Florida Women's Hall of Fame.

Gov. Rick Scott is presiding over the induction Tuesday of Bonita Springs activist Anna Rodriguez and the late educator Mary Brennan Karl. Attorney General Pam Bondi, the only woman currently holding a statewide elected office, also is participating.

Rodriguez, a native of Puerto Rico, is founder and executive director of the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking. She's also an international liaison for the U.S. State Department and a trainer for the Organization of American States.

What began as the Mary Karl Vocational School in Daytona Beach eventually became Daytona Beach Community College and now Daytona State College.
