2019 Webster County: Vernon Bauer

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2019 Webster County: Vernon Bauer


Webster County is excited to nominate Vernon Bauer to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame. 4-H has been an important part most of Vernon’s life. He was a nine year 4-H member and showed chickens, sheep, and cows. He sang in the 4-H county chorus in the 1970s. The chorus met throughout the year and performed at the fair. Vernon was the runner-up fair king in 1977.

Following his years as a 4-H’er, Vernon became a club leader of the Gowrie Gamblers 4-H Club which was later changed to Gowrie Groundbreakers. He served as a club leader for many years and helped as a beef project superintendent. He passed on his love for 4-H when his three children, Phillip, Lisa, and Mark, were involved in the program. All of his children showed sheep and cattle.  He also chaperoned the Citizenship Washington Focus Trip to Washington D.C. in 2010.

Vernon has been a Webster County 4-H volunteer for 34 years. Throughout his years as a volunteer, most importantly, Vernon has enjoyed getting to know the kids.

We can’t thank him enough for his leadership, commitment, and passion over the years.

Congratulations, Vernon!
