has been celebrated by officials at her former high school - they have named the facility's newly-restored performing arts center in her honor.

Field, who graduated from the school in 1964, made a speech during the unveiling ceremony and urged the youngsters to embrace the arts. She said, "I want to say how lucky you are that this beautiful theater exists for you. Use it.
