TWU programs place second in national competition


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University’s child development and family studies programs recently were recognized by the National Council on Family Relations for having the second-highest ratio of students majoring in those fields to receive their CFLE (Certified Family Life Educator) certification for the 2006-07 academic year.

Programs throughout the United States participated in the competition.  In addition to the professional honor, this recognition includes a $500 award.  Dr. Larry LeFlore, professor and chair of the TWU Department of Family Sciences, said the money will be used to support family studies and child development students in the department.

The objective of family life education (FLE) is to enrich and improve the quality of individual and family life.  The National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) sponsors the only international program to certify family life educators.  For more information, visit www.ncfr.org.
