Jerry & Kathee McCrory have combined to give over 50 years of service to the Cass County 4-H program as parents, leaders, volunteers and committee members.
Jerry has served as a leader of the Union Leaders 4-H Club for 21 years. Jerry has also served on the Cass County Extension Council and as chair of the 4-H Youth Action Committee. Currently Jerry serves as the Herdsmanship Superintendent of the Cass County Fair. He works with senior aged 4-H and FFA members to judge barn Herdsmanship twice a day throughout the fair.
Kathee has served as a 4-H leader in Cass County for 31 years, serving with the Union Leaders and the Union Lucky Clovers 4-H clubs. Kathee organizes a variety of workshops throughout the year for members of the club. In addition, Kathee serves as the Pet Superintendent at the Cass County Fair. She is responsible for recommending judges, checking in pets, announcing the show and recording results.
Jerry and Kathee have both been instrumental with the countywide Discovering 4-H workshop. Each winter they volunteer their time and talent to work with young people just beginning their 4-H career, helping them complete a variety of woodworking, wildlife, and clothing projects.
4-H has been a large part of Jerry and Kathee’s lives. They are both 4-H alum and they have chosen to remain active in the 4-H program. Volunteering to support 4-H is the McCrory’s number one hobby.
The McCrory’s live in Atlantic. They have two grown children, Amy and Bill, who were active 4-H’ers in Cass County.
