By Laura Allen

4-H agent

Five volunteers from Rowan County attended 4-H Volunteer Leaders’ Conference on Feb. 1-3 in Raleigh. The delegation joined more than 190 4-H volunteers from across North Carolina.  

While at the conference, delegates had the chance to participate in interactive workshops on topics ranging from robotics to social media, learn with others from across the state, and elect and install officers for the North Carolina 4-H Volunteer Leaders Association.

The conference recognized 4-H volunteer award winners and helped celebrate the achievements of those reaching new 4-H ACE levels.

The 4-H volunteers attending from Rowan County include Maggie Boreman, Charles Nettles, Sarah Nettles, Beth Stebe and Heather Stebe. Boreman received her Bronze Level ACE Master Volunteer award and served as a workshop presenter.

For more information on the 4-H program in Rowan County, contact Laura Allen, Rowan County 4-H agent, at laura_allen@ncsu.edu or 704-216-8970.

As North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, 4-H equips more than 263,000 young people each year with skills to succeed and improve the world around them. Programs and camps offered by 4-H encourage young people to learn by doing.

N.C. State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide.
