Sampson County 4-H’er Haley Stone attended the fifth annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Youth Summit, which was held in Asheville Aug. 15-16.
North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the fifth 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.
Over 100 youth and adults from 85 counties in North Carolina attended this event. The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.
