Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Clayton County: Tammy Muller


Tammy Muller began her involvement in 4-H as a member of the Luana Sunny Sues 4-H club in Clayton County.  While in 4-H she attended the Iowa 4-H Youth Conference, Citizenship Washington Focus trip, and participated in a county exchange to Wyoming.  She served as various club officers and carried a wide variety of projects including dairy, food and nutrition, home improvement, photography, citizenship, clothing and veterinary science. Her favorite project was dairy and she showed registered Jersey cattle at many shows including the World Dairy Expo.

After graduating from high school, Tammy volunteered to help with the county fair dairy show as a superintendent. She recently retired from that job after 40 years!

Tammy is involved with the Clayton County Dairy Promotion Committee and serves as the treasurer. She is a member of St. John Lutheran Church in Farmersburg, where she is involved on the church council and choir.  She also does a few sermons each year when the pastor is on vacation. (A public speaking skill she gained through 4-H.)

In November 1998, Tammy was elected to the Clayton County Extension Council and served as chairperson in 2000. In June 2001, the County 4-H and Youth Program coordinator resigned. Tammy volunteered to help until a replacement could be hired after the county fair.  After much encouragement, Tammy applied for the County Youth Coordinator position and was hired in August 2001. Tammy stated as County Youth Coordinator, “4-H provided many opportunities for me, and now I get to work to provide and plan opportunities and events for others to fulfill their dreams."

Tammy thoroughly enjoys working with the youth of Clayton County and has the nickname “4-H Tammy”.  She continues to work to improve the county 4-H program and inspire youth to reach their full potential.
