Coffey, who serves as chair of the University’s Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) Department, was among those honored at a gala event by the Coordinating Council of Honor Societies.

As part of her recognition, Coffey is included in a newly released book “Leaders in Family and Consumer Science,” published by Kappa Omicron Nu national honor society.

Coffey’s autobiography features contributions from departmental colleagues and Carson-Newman alumnae Dr. Diana Carroll and Judy Tarr Gooch, and was edited by professor emerita of English Dr. Ellen Millsaps.
