Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Mitchell County: Carrie Mayer

 

Carrie Mayer has been dedicated to the Mitchell County   4-H program for the past 25 plus years; as a 4-H parent, leader, fair volunteer, guest speaker, and Clover Kids program volunteer.  Carrie and her husband Roger reside in the community of St. Ansgar. 

With her guidance and support, all three daughters, Kelly, Angela, and Jessica were very successful in the Mitchell County 4-H program.  In 2002, after Carrie’s kids graduated from 4-H she started the Osage Snappy Clippers, an afterschool 4-H club, which was active for 10 years.

Finding herself with time after retiring, Carrie continues to share her love of quilting and sewing with another generation of 4-H youth.  Carrie hosted a 4-H sewing workshop for beginners over winter break. Kids loved learning how to choose fabrics using the elements and principals of design, measure and cut fabric, and use a sewing machine.  In addition, Carrie is an active volunteer with the Afterschool Clover Kids program at Osage Community Schools sharing her time and talents.

Carrie, a retired school teacher, has a true passion for teaching and a strong sense of community. We truly need more volunteers like Carrie!  Thank you for your commitment to 4-H and youth.

Congratulations Carrie!
