N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck presented its annual “Report to the People” to county officials at the April 18th board of commissioners meeting. County Extension Director, Cameron Lowe reminded the public that Cooperative Extension has existed nationwide since 1914, and exists to ensure that everyone has access to nonformal, research based education that improves agriculture, our environment, human health and well being, youth, and communities.
A video highlighting the testimonials of Extension clientele was then shared. Sidney Garrett of Moyock shared what Extension means to farmers. Sarah Joannou shared a heartfelt story about how Extension staff helped her with an especially difficult Medicare situation. Finally, Hannah Meads highlighted how her involvement in 4-H as a young person inspired her to volunteer and pass those traditions on to her own children. Staff shared highlights of the 2022 program year. The video can be viewed in its entirety at https://www.youtube.com/currituckces.
