2014 Greene County - Doug Hawn

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2014 Greene County - Doug Hawn

 

Greene County native Doug Hawn has served as Greene County Fair Board Secretary for 32 years. A life-long 4-Her, he spends hundreds of hours each year in both physical labor and administrative tasks to assure Greene County 4-H members have the best fair experience possible.

Doug provides use of his farm equipment and sound systems each year, and has personally donated supplies and equipment too numerous to mention.

On the technology side, Doug designed the spreadsheet and databases now used for the 4-H exhibits and the accounting/clerking/settlement for the fair auction. He also prepares the annual report of the fair for ISU Extension & Outreach.

Hawn was awarded the state’s Fair Man of the Year award in 2012 by the Association of Iowa Fairs. Only one award is given each year. In May 2014, he was honored with the Greene County Impact Award for his contributions to the Greene County Fair, the Law Enforcement Center, Bell Tower Festival, and countless other county events.
