2019 Hamilton County: Glenda Meyer

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Hamilton County: Glenda Meyer

 

Glenda Meyer has a long line of 4-H participation in her blood.  She was a nine year 4-H member of the Hi Ho Lassies 4-H Club in Kamrar, Iowa.  During those years she was active in horse, swine, foods, and visual arts project areas.  She took those nine years of belonging in 4-H and continued on with her education, growing a family, finding opportunities for mastery and independence that all led her back to the Hamilton County 4-H program, where she generously began serving as a 4-H volunteer. 

Glenda enjoyed supporting the Kamrar Komets 4-H club with booth decorating and in aiding with projects they would work on in their community.  Then as her own children began their 4-H journeys she took on the role of a 4-H club leader for the W.H.H. 4-H club.  During her 8 plus years of leading this club she was eager and able to support the 4-H experience of her own kids, and countless others.  She provided structure, opportunities for leadership growth, community engagement, all with a smile on her face and the ability to go with whatever the flow brought!

As she steps down from her 4-H volunteer role in September, 2019 she will still serve our growing Hamilton County 4-H program being available to support the current W.H.H. club leaders, allowing 4-H’ers to show her family’s sheep and learn from their years of showing experience.  She is ready to come to the Hamilton County Fair and watch many youth she has empowered as they exhibit.

This year will be bitter sweet as she looks in the show arena and the club booths as she and her children’s 4-H journeys have moved on.  However, one thing we know about Glenda, she may continue on with a new piece of her journey but she will always be near her 4-H roots.
