County honorees were selected by their respected counties for their outstanding service and dedication to

4-H, while the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Iowa 4-H Programs office nominated two honorees this year for their service to Iowa 4-H and beyond. Inductees are selected for their exceptional work in contributing to the lives of 4-H members and the overall 4-H program. Many inductees served as club leaders, youth mentors, fair superintendents, fair board members, Iowa State University Extension county council members, county youth council members, fair judges, financial supporters, chaperones, Iowa 4-H Foundation Trustees, or ISU Extension and Outreach staff members. The inductees have demonstrated dedication, encouragement, commitment and guidance to Iowa’s 4-H’ers through the years.

 

“This is a wonderful opportunity for county and state 4-H volunteers and 4-H staff to recognized and celebrated for their outstanding service and dedication to Iowa’s 4-H program,” said Albert Grunenwald, Interim Executive Director of the Iowa 4-H Foundation.
