2018 Guthrie County: Cindy Lundy

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2018 Guthrie County: Cindy Lundy

 

Cindy Lundy has served as a 4-H leader in Guthrie County for 25 years empowering youth to “make the best better”.  She encourages youth involvement in the community and aims to build a “giving-back” perspective to members within her club. 

As a leader, she has assisted in leading several community service projects over the years including renovating the local school’s flower beds, cleaning up yards and parks across local towns, sewing receiving blankets for a local hospital nursery, and collaborating with other local 4-H groups to provide youth activities during holidays and town celebrations.  Over the years of her service, Cindy has also served on the Youth Committee Board, as a static exhibit judge, Livestock Judging Committee and on the Food Stand Committee.  

Supporting local youth has always been a priority of Cindy’s.  She goes above and beyond for club members whether it is giving them advice on preparing their exhibits for the fair or pushing them to step outside their comfort zone to try something new.  She makes a point to be at every livestock show during the county fair offering support, words of encouragement, and congratulating the youth on a job well done.  However, her mentorship of members of her club doesn’t stop at the fair.

Outside of her 4-H leadership role, Cindy has been actively involved in the community through working with youth on a daily basis while working at the ACGC Community Schools.  In addition, she is an active member of Adair United Methodist Church with a mission to feed the community where she has been a leader in establishing a successful local food pantry as well as a community garden.  Cindy strives to lead by example and provide youth with opportunities that build life-long skills.
