Fran Senters, 4-H program assistant with North Carolina Cooperative Extension, was recently recognized for outstanding contributions to Lincoln County 4-H Programs. Senters was awarded the â€œCrandallâ€™s Cream of the Crop,â€ awarded by Dr. Deborah Crandall, Southwest District Extension director.
One Southwest District Extension employee is recognized with this award quarterly.
Senters began working as 4-H program assistant a little over a year ago.
Since that time, she has been instrumental in developing new 4-H clubs and 4-H special interest programs. Five new 4-H clubs including the 4-H Masterminds Club at a Place to Grow, the Hot Dog 4-H Club and the 4-H Drama Club at the Sunrise Community, Do the Do 4-H Club at East Lincoln Middle School and the Voting 4-H Club with East Lincoln Christian Ministries were formed under Senterâ€™s guidance.
Senters also organized the 4-H Summer Ventures Program consisting of six mini camp programs which reached approximately 50 youth.
One of Senters major goals for the future is to make 4-H programs more available to Latino youth. She has a passion for children and wants to increase 4-H availability for all youth, especially children not traditionally served by the program.
