Phyllis Gannon has been involved in 4-H in one way or another for over 217 “4-H years”. She is the matriarch of many years of 4-Hers as a mother, grandmother, and soon to be great grandmother. Phyllis has pursued 4-H for her children and grandchildren. She has “produced” many years of 4-ers and 4-H has always been a high priority for her family. Phyllis is an all around great citizen which is the whole purpose of 4-H! She continues to demonstrate the 4 H’s – head, heart, hands, and health. She will turn 80 this summer and is active as ever. Phyllis and her late husband, Eugene, were 4-H leaders when their children were young. Rick, their eldest son, just retired from leadership of the same club for nearly 15 years.
