Currituck County Cooperative Extension is proud to announce that Ellen Owens has recently been promoted to the role of County Extension Director in Pasquotank County. Ellen served 20 years as the 4-H & Youth Development Agent in Currituck County. She began her role in Pasquotank on July 1st.

During her tenure as 4-H & Youth Development Agent in Currituck County, Ellen led a very successful and diverse 4-H program. She was agent to numerous state and national award winners. Participants in the Currituck 4-H Program during her tenure have gone on to be very successful adults in a variety of fields from animal and veterinary sciences, engineering, and political sciences to education, marketing and medicine. One alumni, Kaitlynn Neeland, was recently named 4-H Agent in Pamlico County. A crowning achievement of Ellen’s career was her role in creating the Currituck 4-H Backpacks for Kids program which provides 160 at risk young people nutritious meals each weekend while school is in session.

“While we will certainly miss interacting with Ellen on a daily basis, we are extraordinarily proud of her latest accomplishment,” said Cameron Lowe, County Extension Director. “She has left a legacy here in Currituck that will live on as the program continues to grow and thrive under new leadership. We are proud of her accomplishments and look forward to her ongoing work to positively impact the public throughout the Northeast region of North Carolina.”
