It is an exciting time at the Currituck County Center of NC Cooperative Extension. First, a quick reminder:
Tonight is the annual Tree Lighting and Parade! Festivities start at 5:30, we'll light the tree at 6:30 and the parade kicks off at 7:00. Get here early!
We are wrapping up our fantastic educational programming for 2019 and celebrating our successes from the year. We'd like to share two items that we are most proud of. Two of our staff members have recently been the recipients of some pretty impressive awards and accolades from their peers.
Stephanie Minton, 4-H Program Assistant with N.C. Cooperative Extension in Currituck County has been making a difference through her work for a number of years, and now she has the awards to prove it. Ms. Minton recently received the state-wide “4-H Make a Difference Award” as well as the “Dr. Bernadette G. Watts Award of Excellence.”
It has been a big year for Olivia (Jones) Patchel. Most recently, Mrs. Patchel was presented the “Outstanding Family and Consumer Sciences Agent” award at the statewide conference of N.C. Cooperative Extension held in Raleigh, NC. This award came on the heels of a Southern US Regional as well as a National Marketing Package Award from the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.
We'll be sharing more of a complete recap of 2019 in our next edition. We'd like to wish all of our clients, volunteers, collaborators and friends a very happy holiday season!
