 2004 Wright County - John HagieJohn Hagie was a 9 year member of the Dayton Dynamiters 4-H club in Wright County. He later was a 4-H leader, beef superintendent at the Wright County District Junior Fair, and for many years served on the Wright County Fair board. John has always been a very strong supporter of both the Wright County District Junior Fair and the Iowa State Fair. He continues that interest by supporting and helping his grandsons with their beef projects as they show at the county and state level. He was the superintendent of the Iowa State Fair Shorthorn show for a number of years.

John is a past recipient of the Friend of Extension award. In 1995, Hagie, as president of Hagie Manufacturing Company, made a donation of $10,000 to the Iowa 4-H Foundation to establish the Wright County Endowment fund. Wright County citizens were challenged to match or exceed the Hagie's donation. The citizen, 4-H member and families responded by exceeding the expectation. Revenue from the Wright Count Endowment is used to enhance the Wright County program, helping 4-H members attain their goals.
