The patrons and staff of Countryside Christian School realized that, as the culture around them changed and their own children attended school longer, they owed their girls an expanded home economics course. Cherlyn Weber was part of the committee that oversaw that expansion. In this video, she talks about the goal of the program: to equip girls with the confidence they need to make their home a haven.
Cherlyn and Sharon Martin, the school’s home-ec coordinator, explain how the program is structured, how they work with community women to staff the home-ec program, and the benefits the school enjoys from this exchange.
