Kanawha County Extension Service Points of Pride

* In 2009, approximately 500 community members visited Family Fun Friday events at the Capitol Market to participate in activities related to better nutrition, improved home horticulture, and youth science projects.

Quotes from Kanawha County Residents

* “Dear Mr. Robert Burton, Nutrition Outreach Instructor…You are always a tremendous inspiration to the folks that attend your Nutrition Program, and we are optimistic that this year the classes will reach even more of our population!” -Suzanne Riley, MSW, Patient Education Coordinator, FamilyCare Health Center

* “Without the WVU Extension Service, there would not be a 4-H camping program in this county. That would be a true loss to the community. I did not start being a leader until age 37, and after 14 years, it has changed my life. I have seen 4-H turn kids around in their lives as well.” – Mark Bright, 4-H Volunteer Leader

* “4-H taught me to care for others, even if you don’t know them.” – Michael Facemire, 4-H Teen Leader

* “Kerri…I think about how you made such a difference in my life. Starting out not knowing what to expect, to thinking Wow! Way to go Cheryl. Being at Ben Franklin those 15 weeks with you really helped me be so much better at my job!” – Cheryl Galloway, Apprenticeship for Child Development Specialists class participant
