Fred has been an invaluable resource to 4-H in Sioux County for more than 20 years. The active role he has played on the local Extension Council, as well as on the IACEC Board has influenced 4-H programming in Sioux County and beyond. He is a strong supporter of leadership development among 4-H volunteers and believes strongly in the value of positive youth development. While he was chair of the local Extension Council he implemented new expectations for 4-H leaders and 4-H clubs. During fairtime, Fred is always available to help kids who have questions about their animal exhibit. He has donated his services as fair veterinarian for many years without compensation. Local citizens expect Fred to raise the bar when it comes to 4-H and other Extension programming. Most recently, Fred has been a driving force in re-organizing Extension’s role in the local fair.
