2012 Winneshiek County- Steven & Donella Darrington

 
Steven and Donella Darrington have been a deep history with the 4-H program in Winneshiek County.
 
They both impacted the 4-H program in many ways. At the club level, they have been 4-H leaders of the Hesper Helpers 4-H Club for 22 years.
 
Steve and Donella are 2 of only 3 people in Winneshiek County that are certified to retinal image animals for entry to the Iowa State Fair. They have chaperoned 4-H camps, led 4-H workshops, worked countless hours at many 4-H events including working as employees and volunteering for the Winneshiek County Fair and Iowa State Fair.
 
Steve and Donella were 2 of the founders and original members of the Winneshiek County 4-H Foundation. They have been very instrumental in growing the endowment for our county 4-H program.
 
Donella worked for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach – Winneshiek County until her retirement in July 2011. She served as the County 4-H and Youth Coordinator and most recently as the 4-H Office Assistant during her 18 year career with ISU Extension.
 
Steve and Donella live and farm in rural Decorah where they work together running their business, Agmerica Northeast LLC. Steven and Donella have three children, Andrew, Melissa and Patrick who all have families.
 

Winneshiek County Extension and the 4-H program have been blessed with their support and financial contributions for many years. Congratulations to Steven and Donella Darrington.
