ELIZABETHTOWN — Anna Kate White, a 4-H’er from Bladen County and freshman at East Bladen High, attended the sixth annual North Carolina Association of County Commissioners Youth Summit, which was held in Greenville on Aug. 21-22.
North Carolina 4-H and the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service partnered for the sixth 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.
More than 100 youth and adults from 80 counties in North Carolina attended this event. The event is sponsored and supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners.
White is the daughter of Kim and De White of Elizabethtown. She currently serves as president of her community 4-H club, the Super Clovers, and president of the Bladen County 4-H Council.
