Courtney Clemons (Happ) will be leaving Cooperative Extension as the 4-H Program Assistant on July 30. Courtney has been with our office for the last 16 months and has done a wonderful job in our special projects in 4-H. Cooperative Extension will miss her diligent work on behalf of the county’s youth.

Courtney is leaving to take a teaching position with Cleveland Community College in Shelby. She will be teaching animal science a field in which she earned both her B.S. and M.S. degrees from North Carolina State University. It will also be closer to home for Courtney. She has the opportunity to start a new department there and we’re sure it will be great with her leadership.

Since coming to Extension on April 1, 2021, Courtney has continued the strong reputation of special projects such as sewing, Agricultural Day Camp and mini gardening. In addition, she has been active in initiating other projects such as knitting/crocheting and cooking classes. The youth have been excited about these classes and they stayed full almost all of the time.

More recently, Courtney has been involved in bringing livestock judging back to Henderson County 4-H. Along with our livestock agent, Abby Whitaker, they have managed to put together a solid team that will compete at the state level in the coming weeks.

All of the programs that Courtney has been in charge of are outside the 4-H Club and school enrichment activities that our 4-H program offers. Therefore, they are critical to reaching those youth with interests that may fall outside of these other programs. She has done a great job of recruiting volunteers to support these programs as well as the youth that participate in them.

We wish Courtney all the best in her new career. We also offer our gratitude for the fine work that she has done with our office over the last 16 months. We hope to build on the foundation she has laid as we seek to fill her position. Stop by and wish Courtney well before she leaves. And give her a word of thanks.
