4-H delegationCherokee County 4-H member Chloe Harrelson attended 4-H Citizenship North Carolina Focus, which was held in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Cherokee County 4-H delegate returned home from three days in 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.

Chloe was chosen to represented Cherokee County at the June 12-14 conference. Through various conference sessions and facilitated discussions, delegates learned and shared information related to local, state and national government as well as learned how they could make an impact in the area of citizenship. The event culminated with delegates traveling to the Legislative Building in Raleigh to meet with their elected officials and their staff.Chloe Harrelson and Representative Corbin

Chloe met with Representative Kevin Corbin and was given the opportunity to talk to Rep. Corbin and ask questions. Rep. Corbin gave Chloe a state seal pin and allowed her to go onto the House of Representatives floor and have her picture made with him. He spent a great deal of time talking to Chloe about how state government works. Chloe was also to go visit with Cherokee County’s State Senator Jim Davis. Unfortunately, Sen. Davis was in committee meetings all day but his wonderful Legislative Assistant Kaye Culberson filled in for him and took Chloe on a tour and even let her sit at Sen. Davis’ desk and prop up as if she had a long day arguing important bills on the senate floor. Ms. Culberson also took Chloe onto the Senate floor and took pictures of her to add to this wonderful experience.
