College names FACS 100 Centennial honorees to be celebrated Feb. 24
The College of Family and Consumer Sciences has announced the FACS 100 Centennial honorees.
These individuals embody conviction and commitment to the ideals of the college and, through vision and hard work, have been instrumental in advancing the college's ability to serve students and enrich lives through its mission at the University of Georgia. Honorees were chosen by a committee of faculty, staff, alumni, students and college leadership after an open nominations process in advance of the college's centennial celebration this year.
The College of Family and Consumer Sciences can trace its origins to 1918 and the establishment of a bachelor's degree program for women in the Division of Home Economics within the UGA College of Agriculture.
At the FACS 100 Gala: A Centennial Celebration on Feb. 24, the FACS 100 Centennial honorees will be recognized, along with the members of the college's Honor Hall of Recognition, as influential contributors in the first 100 years of home economics and family and consumer sciences at UGA.
A special centennial website will launch this month that will include biographies and photos of the honorees.
