Hello Gators!! My name is Mrs. Blankenship and this makes my 10th year teaching the wonderful subject of Family and Consumer Science.  At Greenwood High School we offer several classes for our future adults to aquire the skills necessary to be successful individuals. The FCS department currently has 3 career majors students can complete; Consumer and Family Management , Hospitality, Restaurant, Recreation and Tourism and Early Childhood Education. Majoring in one of these career majors offered at GHS will provide students with that one extra foot in the door in college OR a job in that career field when they graduate high school. See below for a list of classes in each career major. Feel free to contact our department with any questions!
