LUMBERTON — A delegation of Robeson County 4-H members attended 4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus, which was held recently in Raleigh.
The Robeson County delegation returned home from three days during which more than 120 youth and adults representing 48 4-H programs across the state gathered to exchange ideas, gain knowledge, and learn through hands-on experiences about the importance of being an active and engaged citizen.
Taleek Harlee represented Robeson County at the conference. Through various conference sessions and facilitated discussions, delegates learned and shared information related to local, state, and national government and learned how they could make an impact in the area of citizenship.
The event concluded with delegates traveling to the Legislative Building in Raleigh to meet with their elected officials. Sen. Danny Britt Jr., and Reps. Charles Graham and Garland Pierce took time to talk with Harlee and show him around the Senate and House chambers. Harlee also had the opportunity to meet Secretary of State Elaine Marshall, who is a 4-H alumna.
