Raymond Butt has served as a 4-H club leader in Cass County for 42 years. Membership in the Cass Coed Clan 4-H club has remained strong and active under his leadership. Raymond has always been willing to go above and beyond to help out the youth in Cass County. He volunteers to transport exhibits to the State Fair for his club members and supports the youth in the county through the livestock sale. Raymond continues to look for ways to improve himself by attending leader trainings and workshops throughout the year.
In addition to Raymond’s leader responsibilities, he serves as an assistant superintendent in the sheep department, organizes set-up and clean-up day in the show barn at county fair, and is a township chair for the 4-H fair foodstand. He has served as an interviewer for the SW area project award selection.
