“Extension makes a positive difference in the community every day. We provide educational programs that connect communities with research-based information. Our internship program is another way we help prepare students for challenging and rewarding careers in food, agriculture, natural resources, and family and consumer sciences,” said Dr. Richard Bonanno, associate dean of the NC State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of NC State Extension.

White, a Danbury native, is a junior from Ferrum College majoring in agriculture with emphases in animal science and agribusiness.
