Museums and Institutions Professional
LynDee Larson Lombardo was named the Washington Affiliate of Family and Consumer Sciences 2013 Professional of the Year at their October Fall Conference in Vancouver, Washington.
On June 28th in St. Louis, Missouri, she received the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences 2014 Leaders Award at the annual conference Pacesetter Dinner accompanied by her husband, Terry Lombardo, with many friends and colleagues in attendance.
The Leaders Award was first presented at the AAFCS 75th anniversary in 1984, when it was established to identify and honor family and consumer sciences professionals who have made significant contributions to the field through their involvement with AAFCS. Each honoree is judged on seven areas where they have made contributions to the field of Family and Consumer Sciences including serving at the local, affiliate and national levels of the organization, advocating for the profession, enhancing existing programs and/or creating curriculum, publishing in journals, and working cooperatively and effectively with agencies outside of the Family and Consumer Sciences community.
LynDee presentations at the Washington Association of Family and Consumer Sciences have featured information on re-purposing, redesigning, creatively using fiber and fabric. She has exhibited her textile constructions at the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Apparel, Textiles & Design Juried Showcases. Her textile work has been exhibited at the Tacoma Art Museum’s Birthday Celebration and at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, CO. Her quilt, Stella Azure, is currently part of the Hoffman Challenge 2010 Traveling Exhibit.
