— Written By and last updated by

A delegation from Anson attended the 68th annual 4-H Electric Congress July 13-15 at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. 180 4‑H’ers, adult leaders and N.C. Cooperative Extension agents from 54 counties attended the three-day event. Since 1947, Duke Energy and Dominion North Carolina Power have sponsored the annual congress to emphasize energy conservation and safe electricity use. The 4-H electric energy program is one of the most popular activities among Tar Heel 4-H’ers. 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 232,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities each year with the help of 20,563 adult and youth volunteers. Pictured from left are Wayne Huddleston, Account Manager with Duke Energy, Na’La Brown, 16, daughter of Terrence and Natona Brown, and 4-H Volunteer Leader Betty Garris.
