Extension Education (EE) – The mission of the Texas Extension Education Association, Inc. is to work with the Texas AgriLife Extension Service to strengthen and enrich families through educational programs, leadership development, and community service.
The TEEA Motto is: “Family, Education, Leadership, Serice”
The TEEA Creed: We believe in the sanctity of home, We believe in the home as the place where love, faith, trust, and devotion must be lived each day, where obedience and reverence grow, and where God is known. We believe those within its walls should be taught to work, to play, and to have compassion for those less fortunate. We believe sharing the responsibilities is necessary and that from the fireside will come the citizens who will uphold the best ways of life.
The TEEA Dues: Funds are obtained by a dues of $15.00 per year for each member and $4.00 county dues of an Extension Education Club to be used for support of 12 college scholarships and by districts to encourage 4-H Club work.
The TEEA Colors: Blue and White
The TEEA Flower: Zinnia
The TEEA Pin: The TEEA Pin may be ordered through your TEEA Chairman, either in silver or gold. All Club women are urged to wear it as the emblem of their organization.
