Anson County 4-H’er featured in State Extension Magazine

August 17, 2013

Anson County 4-H’er Curtis Crump is featured in Perspectives magazine speaking about the impact Cooperative Extension has made in his life.

This article is a part of the National Branding Initiative by Cooperative Extension to provide personal messages on how Extension helps its clients. Counties across the state were asked to submit possible candidates that could tell how Extension programs had positively impacted their lives.

Anson County Extension director Janine Rywak made Crump’s submission. Weeks later, Roshunda Blount, 4-H Agent, was notified by the magazine’s managing editor that Crump was selected for the next round, which included questions, testimonial and a photo shoot. Crump handled the rest.

After submitting his questions, a week later he had been selected to speak about his experiences with 4-H (Cooperative Extension’s Youth Education Program) to illustrate the differences Extension makes. A time was set up for his photo shoot and the rest was history until the publication came in the mail at the Extension Office Thursday.

Crump is a rising sophomore at East Carolina University studying healthcare administration, and is the son of Emma Henry and Curtis R. Crump. Perspectives magazine is published quarterly by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University. Anson County Cooperative Extension and Anson County 4-H are proud of you Curtis!
