"Going Local" NC Farm Bureau Grant Recipients

"Going Local" grants awarded by NC Farm Bureau to four DCS teachers


KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA- January 8, 2019- Kenansville Elementary School teachers Regina Kilpatrick and Robin Mewborn, North Duplin Jr./Sr. High School teacher Lynn Marshburn, and Chinquapin Elementary School teacher Rebecca Brown were the most recent recipients of the “Going Local” grants that are given on behalf of North Carolina Farm Bureau.  Dexter Edwards, Farm Bureau representative, awarded the grants during Tuesday night’s Board of Education meeting.

“Our county never fails.  We get grants put back into Duplin County every single year and it is because of the dedication and the passion these teachers put into their requests for these grants,” said Edwards.  Edwards noted these grants are to “help inspire agriculture” for our young people within the county.
