NC Professionalism Workshop

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On Wednesday, April 3rd, the North Carolina Chapter participated in a professionalism workshop. Agricultural and Extension Education professor, Dr. Barry Croom was invited by the Leadership Committee to come speak at 7:30.  The purpose of the workshop was to help brothers learn about professional ways to communicate with each other, especially when in leadership positions or working in groups. Dr. Croom began the meeting with a fun team building activity followed by a discussion of communication habits and skill.  This was a great time for the workshop because brothers are considering what officer positions they may like to run for in the next few weeks.

NC Dines at Sammy's

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

The North Carolina Chapter loves to eat!  The social committee organized a group dinner at Sammy’s Grill at 6:15 on Wednesday April 3rd. Twenty-four brothers came for delicious dinner.  We were able to relax and enjoy a break from studying before our regular meeting. There were so many of us eating that we were almost late for the meeting. It is great for brothers to have a chance to catch up during a busy semester.

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

NC Preschool Farm Animal Talk

On Friday March 22nd, 13 brothers went to the Country Day Montessori Preschool to give them a lesson about chickens and pigs. We brought four chicks and two pigs. The kids were thrilled to pet the animals and the brothers enjoyed spending time with the kids. It is a great opportunity to introduce kids to agriculture when some of them probably never touched a farm animal. We have developed a great partnership with the preschool and hope to go back for Earth Day to plant flowers.
