David Thompson named 'Champion for Family and Consumer Sciences'
Thursday, August 20, 2015
The award came from the Kansas Association of Teachers of Family and Consumer Sciences at its annual meeting in July in Overland Park.
The honor annually recognizes a person, business, company, government or community-based agency who had exemplified extraordinary support and concern for family and consumer sciences.
"FACS educators are making a difference in countless lives across the state and nation as they provide life skills for junior high and high school students," Thompson said. "There is a huge shortage of FACS teachers across the nation, and it is my privilege to regularly promote FACS education as a career possibility to students in all of my courses."
The Family Studies and Human Services major at Kansas State University is excellent preparation for future FACS teachers as they are educated in dealing with a wide diversity of people across the lifespan, he added.
