Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina's third congressional district visited the Pitt County Extension Center recently to learn about the impacts of the local Cooperative Extension program. Thirty advisory members along with Extension customers and administrators were among those who attended this event.

“Back Home” visits are held annually for U.S. congressional representatives in order to showcase quality Extension programs and provide a forum for Extension advisory leaders to interact with congressional leaders.
