Yvonne has a love for 4-H and the youth in Benton County that goes beyond compare. She has helped shape the minds and values of so many 4-H’ers in her career as a leader that the true numbers of the lives she has touched will never be known.  The great honor of being inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame is only a small way to show how truly grateful we are for everything that she has done for our 4-H Program now and for years to come.
