The 8,400 square-foot facility, to be named the SECU 4-H Learning Center, will be located in Richmond County, serving as an educational destination for all North Carolinians, including school groups, 4-H members and families and the general public. With almost 500 attendees from across North Carolina, SECU Foundation Executive Director Mark Twisdale presented the challenge grant to the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service Foundation at the State 4-H Congress dinner held on July 20 in Raleigh, N.C. Aimed at making North Carolina, world and U.S. history come alive, the SECU 4-H Learning Center will provide N.C. youth with a laboratory and outdoor learning stations to provide interactive experiences that will engage fourth and eighth grade social studies students. For students who cannot make the trip, the center will provide teaching kits, exhibits and on-line curriculum experiences. An estimated 40,000 youth and adults will be served annually at the center, with additional school groups engaged through the travel program. SECU has $23 billion in assets.
