NC Cooperative Extension has expressed congratulations Henry Gregory Dozier IV of Currituck for winning the Currituck County Extension and Community Association (ECA) Scholarship.

This year’s scholarship was presented to Henry Gregory Dozier of Currituck by ECA County Council President Evelyn Henley. Working as a volunteer group for N.C.
