She has continued the relationships with these families.  Shirley has an unending enthusiasm for the 4-H program, a commitment to 4-H youth and networking ability to gain recognition and awareness in our community.  

“There are people who can work with kids and there are people who can teach kids.  There are people who can bring a community together, accomplish goals, and make good things happen.  Then there are people like Shirley Stuart who can do all of these things!” ~ a former co-worker

Shirley is active in Ottumwa’s community, an adoring grandmother, and an avid Iowa State University Cyclone fan.
