Pasquotank County is pleased to announce that Lynnell Godfrey joined our staff on March 2, 2020, as the Youth EFNEP Educator. Lynnell was raised in Pasquotank County and attended school in the Elizabeth City/Pasquotank School System. Lynnell is CNA certified and has completed the medical assistant program. Lynnell has been married to her husband, Walter Neal Godfrey, Jr., for 26 years, they have 2 children Shawn Holley and Khardacia Godfrey, and 4 grandchildren.

Lynnell will be working with our local schools to deliver the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). Youth enrolled in EFNEP will have fun while they learn about MyPlate and the five food groups, good food safety practices, and physical activity. Through hands-on active learning, students will learn new skills, new foods to try, and new ways to get fit.

Lynnell stated, “I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking for friends and family. I also love to help and encourage individuals to be the most they can be so being able to work in the county where I grew is such a blessing.”
