“Extension makes a positive difference in the community every day. We provide educational programs that connect communities with research-based information. Our internship program is another way we help prepare students for challenging and rewarding careers in food, agriculture, natural resources, and family and consumer sciences” said Dr. Richard Bonanno, Associate Dean of the NC State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of NC State Extension.

“We are excited to have Kirsten joining our Orange County Cooperative Extension team for the summer”, said Jonathon Smith, Extension Agent for 4-H Youth Development and Orange County summer Extension internship coordinator. “As a native of Orange County, Kirsten is already well connected within the agricultural community.
