Advisory Council Names New Members and Officers

— Written By N.C. Cooperative Extension

Jamie Berry, Arlene Childers, Terry Craycraft, Kenneth King, James Lamb, Ron Lewis, Robert Lowman and Beth Willard recently were appointed to serve on the Burke County Extension Advisory Council.

These eight new members will serve three-year terms on the council, effective immediately, joining 17 other members on the Council. We expect these new and current members to help Cooperative Extension link NC State University and A & T State University to problems identified in their communities. They also will help educate elected officials and the community about the scope of Extension programs and their impact on the quality of life of Burke County citizens.

In addition, at the January meeting the Advisory Council members elected the 2011 Officers. Susan Bartlett, President; Joan Rovenstine, Vice President; Teresa Adkins, Treasurer; and Carol Lamb, Secretary will serve as the Executive Committee for the Council.

The Burke County Extension Advisory Council’s mission is to keep Cooperative Extension programs relevant and valuable to Burke citizens. There are a total of 25 county leaders who meet quarterly to address this mission.
