Flo Biehl Interview- 12/15/2014
Flo Biehl was born in 1930, at home on the family farm near Burns, KS, on the edge of the Flint Hills. She lived and attended public schools there until she enrolled at Kansas State University at the young age of seventeen. After graduation, she taught high school Home Economics in a number of Kansas schools before marrying and raising a family. Moving with her husband and sons to Olathe in the early 1960s, she participated in K-State Research and Extension programming, particularly clothing construction and the tailoring classes. As a result, she was offered the position of Home Economics Agent (later Family and Consumer Sciences) and began her thirty-seven and a half year Extension career in 1963. She retired in 1999. Flo remains an active participant in many organizations and in Extension programming with her Family and Community Education Unit (FCE).
