Carol Yvonne Capel, North Carolina Cooperative Extension secretary at the Richmond County center, was recognized recently for 5 years of service to N.C. Cooperative Extension.
Capel was honored at Cooperative Extension’s south central district conference held in Moore County. She has worked for Extension since May of 2006, and reached her service milestone in 2011.
“Carol is an indispensable asset to the Extension office. She directly supports the Livestock and 4-H programs, but never fails to willingly do any task asked of her to benefit the total office. The Extension office excels in client customer service due, in large part, to her helpful demeanor and friendly ‘first face’ for any and all who call or stop by,” said Paige Burns, Interim County Extension Director.
North Carolina Cooperative Extension partners with communities to deliver education and technology that enrich the lives, land and economy of North Carolinians. The extension serves citizens of the state’s 100 counties and the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation, providing education and technical assistance based on research from North Carolina’s land-grant universities, N.C. State University and N.C. A&T State University.
The extension specializes in agriculture, youth, families, communities, health and the environment by responding to local needs. Visit the local office’s Facebook page linked at http://richmond.ces.ncsu.edu, or call 910-997-8255 to reach the office located at 123 Caroline St. in Rockingham.
