Small Farms Resources at NC A&T State University

Extension specialist with new audience for a specialty

Dr. Claudette Smith of the Cooperative Extension Program at A&T has retooled her expertise in personal finances and household money management that were originally used to develop financial literacy programs for individuals and families with limited financial resources for a more immediate neighborhood: the staff at A&T’s Center for Student Excellence (CSE), which works to ensure students’ academic success with basic life skills that support academic goals and progress. The CSE places a special emphasis on orientation for first-year students, and guiding them through the considerations involved in selecting major.

Smith’s early August presentation portfolio also included the N.C. Extension Association of
 Family & Consumer Sciences where, on Aug. 7, she was the closing speaking for the two-and-a-half-day conference in Durham.
