A 4-H’er from Pender County attended the third annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Youth Summit, which was held in Raleigh, North Carolina August 17-18, 2012. North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the third year with the NCACC on a multi-year initiative to increase youth involvement in county government. This initiative aims to overcome the mindset that many youth are disengaged and lack trust in government.

The 4-H’er who attended from Pender County was Ryan Teeter of Hampstead, NC.  Over 110 youth and adults from over 65 counties in North Carolina attended this event.  The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.

For more information on the 4-H program in Pender County, please contact 4-H Agent, Lauren Langley at 910-259-1235 or lauren_langley@ncsu.edu.

The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 235,000 young people ages 5 through 18 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,400 adult and youth volunteers.
