Tallahassee, FL - Florida A&M celebrated the 100Th Anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914. It was the act President Woodrow Wilson signed to create the Cooperative Extension Program at Land Grant Universities like FAMU. Now Extension Services are in every county in the United States to help folks with useful and practical information in Agriculture and other fields. FAMU said their goal in Cooperative Extension Services is to Reach, Teach and Serve folks with resources in 18 counties in Florida. "Families have benefited from resource management, learning how to manage their household dollars. Also cook nutritious food for their families," said Vonda Richardson, Associate Director of FAMU Extension.
