FCS Rap Song CD

In 2009, AAFCS celebrated 100 years of the Association's distinguished history and discussed how AAFCS could help individuals, families, and communities shape their futures. As a part of this celebration, the Family and Consumer Sciences units at Tennessee universities and colleges worked with their students to plan and present a program that would focus on the future while acknowledging our important heritage. One result of the student's collaboration was the development of the Family And Consumer Sciences (FACS) Rap, an original work recorded for the Centennial Celebration which was written by Michele Meehan and arranged and performed by Jonathan Sexton.

Orders can be placed through the UT website at https://web.dii.utk.edu/agStore/p-2708-facs-rap-cd.aspx.
