The electric cooperative commitment to community (see Rising to the Challenges of an Unprecedented Year) extends to building a brighter future for the next generation of North Carolinians by partnering with statewide and local organizations to support education initiatives. One long-standing partner in this effort is North Carolina 4-H.
For more than 10 years, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have been proud sponsors of NC 4-H’s Citizenship North Carolina Focus conference, which gives high-school-age 4-H’ers the opportunity to learn about civic engagement, youth advocacy and how to make a difference in their communities.
This year, the state’s electric co-ops received special thanks from the NC 4-H state officer team for support of the 2020 event, held online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“While this year’s [conference] looked a little bit different than previous years, it was still a wonderful time to come together and learn about local and state government,” said NC 4-H State Council President Chloe Allen. “Thank you, North Carolina electric cooperatives for helping us to focus on our future and for sponsoring the North Carolina 4-H Citizenship Focus.”
