ribbon cutting at 4-H center

The facility that is expected to be N.C. State University’s first “green” LEED-certified building was dedicated Jan. 6, but it isn’t on campus. The conference center at the Eastern 4-H Educational Center in Tyrrell County was dedicated before a crowd of 300, including 4-H’ers, N.C. State’s Chancellor Randy Woodson and N.C. Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. The conference center is awaiting LEED certification -- Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design -- the rating system for green buildings created by the U.S. Green Building Council.
