New Year, New Stuff, Same Us

— Written By

The new year has made quite an entrance with record-breaking temperatures, frozen waterways, and unusual snowfall in our area. Perhaps it has been the stark shift in the weather and forced change of pace that has prompted your Currituck County Extension staff to stop, reflect, and prepare to serve you better in 2018.

We hope (and believe) that over the years you have come to view Currituck County Extension as a trusted source of unbiased and reliable information; as a workgroup that can be depended upon to be responsive and deliver results; as employees that utilize our resources responsibly; and as individuals who deeply care for and want the absolute best for our community. We love what we do, we believe in what we do, and we want to lead the way and set the example for our customers, clients, and partners. We know that education is a lifelong process and the key to improving the quality of life for ourselves and our community.

It is this spirit of ongoing education and growth, that has led to some intense reflection and conversation among your Extension staff regarding how and why we do what we do organizationally. We have recognized some strengths and identified some areas for growth. We sincerely hope you will enjoy and benefit from the journey with us in 2018 as we:

  • increase the number of educational articles, videos and other publications produced for our clients;
  • better plan, communicate, and market our educational class schedules;
  • experiment with new technologies for program delivery; and
  • enhance our partnerships and collaborations.

Be sure you peruse our twice-monthly newsletter, follow us on social media and visit our website regularly. We also welcome you to give us a call at 232-2261 or drop by and see us at 120 Community Way in Barco, NC. We look forward to interacting with you soon. It truly is a pleasure to serve you!
