News from NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck
Annual Report to the People

 Each year, NC Cooperative Extension in Currituck County takes time to share the results of the previous year's work with clients, leaders, and the community as a whole. We take very seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of public resources and provide the highest value possible. Now is that time of year!

We recently presented our annual “Report to the People” to county officials. Commissioners, extension advisors, volunteers, and county staff were invited to “speed date” various Extension educational programs. You can read more about that event here .

To see a full report of Currituck Extension's 2018 impacts, view our program impact report found here .

We hope that you will take some time to peruse our website and social media and learn what educational opportunities are available and important to you in 2019. As is our goal each year, we are committed to making our best efforts even better in 2019!
