New Exposure for Life and Legacy Video about Ellen Swallow Richards

Several years ago at AAFCS Annual Meeting one of our speakers mentioned that the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Division of Family and Consumer Sciences was going to develop a Master Family & Consumer Sciences Volunteer Program, which includes a 13 lesson series for training volunteers as well as a website. The Life and Legacy video of Ellen Swallow Richards was offered as a means to teach volunteers some of the history of our profession. Today, this website is live, and with this link you can visit the site as well as view the Ellen video. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the video.

We sincerely thank Beverly Samuel, CFCS, National Program Leader, Housing and Community Living, Division of Family and Consumer Sciences for her efforts to make this a reality. The more people who read about our history, the more support we will have for the value of our profession.
