FCS honors 9 with 2009 ‘Outstanding Programming Award’
Deniese Zeringue was one of nine to win an award from the FCS.
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.
