Community Collaborations!

Throughout the year we have the opportunity of partnering with other local organizations within our community. In April, Angela Galloway, our 4H Agent and Hazel McPhatter, our EFNEP Agent had the privilege of partnering with Trio Upward Bound, a program of Partners in Ministry. Angela presented a Building Your Future program to students and helped them explore their interests and career matches. Hazel presented a Keeping It Healthy program that helped students analyze their current eating and exercise habits and set healthy goals for their future. We genuinely enjoyed working with Trio Upward Bound and look forward to many other collaborations in the future!
