Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2005 Franklin County - Dave Flint


2005 Franklin County - Dave FlintDave Flint may be remembered for tenure with the Hampton FFA program, but he has been involved with 4-H since the early 40’s when he was a member himself.  Over the years he has worked cooperatively with the Franklin County 4-H program, particularly livestock judging.  After retirement, Dave worked to save the history of Franklin County 4-H clubs for the county Historical Society.

Dave was a member of the Adams Hawkeyes 4-H Club in Dallas County.  Many of the goals used in the 1940’s are still used today, most importantly that       4-H’ers learn by doing – using “Hands On” technique.  It reminded him of a philosophy he employed in his years of teaching: “Tell me and I will forget.  Show me and I will remember.  Involve me and I will understand.”
