A 4-Her from Sampson County attended the third annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) Youth Summit, which was held in Greensboro Aug. 23-24. North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the fourth 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.
The 4-Her who attended from Sampson County was Haley Stone. Over 100 youth and adults from 74 counties in North Carolina attended this event. The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.

The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 237,590 young people ages 5 through 18 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,780 adult and youth volunteers.
