Engman became the director and Kay Embrey became the Wayne County office director in 1980. Kathy (Fox) Castania was hired in 1981 and she and Embrey founded the Wayne Action for Racial Equality. For the first years of the program all funding was provided by the College of Agriculture and Cornell Cooperative Extension. By the mid 1970's, grant money was being raised to expand programs.
