Deniese Zeringue was one of nine to win an award from the FCS.
Nine LSU AgCenter educators recently won top honors for their home-buyer education program at the Louisiana Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences annual meeting.

The group was honored for outstanding programming that reaches out to communities and special-needs families. Their program, “Charting Your Course to Home Ownership,” uses multimedia presentations to guide participants through choosing, negotiating and obtaining the best home and mortgage.

“Our 12- hour curriculum engages homeowners and potential homeowners in managing their credit, maintaining a home investment and building successful homeownership skills to last a lifetime,” said team leader Jeanette Tucker, family economist.

The program targets first-time home buyers and hurricane victims.

Team members also include extension associate Deborah Hurlbert, Baton Rouge; extension agents Margaret Burlew, Terrebonne Parish; Deborah Cross, Iberville Parish; Sheri Fair, Ascension Parish; Cynthia Richard, Calcasieu Parish; Cynthia Stephens, Ouachita Parish; and associate extension agents Valerie Vincent, Washington Parish; and Deniese Zeringue, St. Charles Parish.

Deniese Zeringue also won the Distinguished Service Award for professional Development.
