Grant Gibbs, a rising junior at Pungo Christian Academy, and Bo Spencer, a rising junior at Pungo Christian Academy, have been selected to attend the Resource Conservation Workshop at North Carolina State University June 26-1 July 2022.
This workshop was organized by the North Carolina Association of Soil & Water Conservation Districts. The Hyde Soil & Water Conservation District sponsored Grant and Bo by providing their entry fees and travel expenses.
Grant is the son of Christian & Connie Gibbs of Fairfield, NC. Grant grew up in Hyde County and was involved in Hyde County 4-H activities.
Bo is the son of Chad and Paula Spencer of Swan Quarter, NC and he has also been involved in Hyde County 4-H program activities.
These two young men love and appreciate our natural resources and care about the wise management of these resources.
The Resource Conservation Workshop is a week of intensive study requiring student attention and participation in a wide range of conservation topics.
Students learned about soil characteristics and conservation, wildlife and fisheries management, forest management, non-agricultural uses of soil and water quality, and watershed management. Students complete several field trips to different facilities and experience hands-on learning in the field.
At the end of the study week, students will have the opportunity to compete for prizes and scholarships through their participation in the workshop.
