I wanted to take the time to say thank you to all the members who supported the AAFCS signature initiatives for 2016 -2017; this includes encouraging our students, colleagues and neighbors “To Say Yes to FCS” and advocating for the FCS Day Dine In held December 3, 2016. What you have done has truly made a difference in the lives of someone in North Carolina. As we know there is still work left to be done. Soon, Dr. Meeshay Williams-Wheeler, North Carolina A&T State University, will be lighting the Betty lamp as many others have done in the past to carry out the work that once started many years ago. As you have supported me, I ask that you continue to show the same level of dedication and commitment to the new members of the executive committee. We are truly thankful that these members are willing to volunteer their time and energy on behalf of the North Carolina affiliate to support the growth and advocacy of Family and Consumer Sciences.
I encourage all members to get involved on a committee! Please contact Mrs. Dawn Harrison, if you are interested in learning how to plan the state spring conference or Mrs. Karen Brown if you are interested in supporting advocacy of FCS on a state and local level, as the saying goes, many hands make the load light. Lastly, please celebrate National FCS Educators Day on May 4, 2017. Please make plans to celebrate the event in the schools and in your communities.
Special Note of Thanks,
On behalf of the North Carolina Association of Family and Consumer Sciences, I would like to thank all of our members who gave of your time, energy and most of all, for your service. A little kindness makes such a difference in a day. Your thoughtfulness certainly made a difference in the day as we supported our 99th Annual Spring Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. We truly appreciate your continued support of the association and its endeavors.
We look forward to seeing you again in the near future and hope that we can continue to count on you to provide your expertise to our professional association.
With Much Appreciation
