2012 Warren County- Kevin & Jane Putney

Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2012 Warren County- Kevin & Jane Putney

 
Kevin Putney joined the White Oak Climbers 4-H Club when he was 10 years old.  He was actively involved in 4-H through high school.  After high school he helped with Senior 4-H where he met Jane.
 
Jane Putney was also in 4-H growing up and graduated from Iowa State University.  She later became the Warren County 4-H Agent in October of 1978.
 
In 1987 Jane left Extension to raise two sons:  Mark and Curt.  Jane helped and supported Kevin with the entire farming operation.
 
Eventually, their passion for 4-H compelled them to become 4-H leaders of the White Oak Climbers 4-H Club when their sons joined 4-H.  They were the leaders of this club for nine years, until their son, Curt, graduated from high school.
 
During their many years of 4-H involvement, Jane was a 4-H judge for several Central Iowa counties, including the Iowa State Fair.  Kevin is the auctioneer at the 4-H Livestock Sale and has continued helping the White Oak Climbers 4-H Club when needed and, of course, any other 4-H member when asked. 
 

Both, Kevin and Jane Putney, have dedicated their lives to the Warren County 4-H program and the Warren County Fair.  Kevin and Jane have made a lasting impact on the lives of many young people in Warren County.  We are proud to nominate this couple for the 2012 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.
