Sally Combs, a member of ACTE since the late 1970s, was elected vice president of the Family and Consumer Sciences Education Division in July 1998. A family and consumer sciences instructor at Atlanta Technical Institute since 1976, Combs also has experience working in extension services, retail sales and social work.
Prior to becoming division vice president, Combs served on the FACS Division's policy and planning board in several capacities. She also is active in the Georgia Association for Career and Technical Education, the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences and the Professional Association of Georgia Educators.
Combs sees the broad adoption of national teaching standards in FACS education as an exciting division accomplishment. She says the critical issues facing the FACS Division are the shortage of qualified professionals and lasting commitment to professional activities.
