County recognized for Extension partnership


Sampson County was the recipient of the 2017 N.C. Cooperative Extension’s Partnership Award, representing the Southeast Extension District. Local Cooperative Extension director Eileen Coite talked about the strong partnership between the agency and its local county board and staff in receiving the award, which was officially awarded at a N.C. Association of County Commissioners meeting last month and presented to the board on Monday night. ‘We feel like we have a very strong partnership between Cooperative Extension and our county government. We feel like we’re included in so many things that are going on and you supported us during our restructuring process,’ said Coite. She also mentioned the pay and classification study that would benefit Extension employees, the resources offered by the county and the regular involvement local government officials have in Extension activities and events. In recent months, some of that participation has been at the Extension’s Report to People dinner, the Small Farms Week Kickoff and 4-H Achievement Night. ‘You’re always there to participate in our major Extension events,’ said Coite. Chairman Clark Wooten, who accepted the award, thanked Coite and her staff for all they do.
