Mary DreeszenIda County takes great pride in nominating Mary Dreeszen to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.  Mary served as a 4-H leader in Ida County for 15 years and was selected as the first annual Ida County 4-H Leader of the Year as leader of the Griggs Lassies in 1999.  She was selected again in 2008 while leader of the Battle Badgers 4-H Club.

Mary was County Youth Coordinator for Ida and Sac counties from 1976-1980 and for Cherokee county from 1980-1982. 

Mary has been an inspiration to many 4-H’ers while serving in the following capacities:
·    Leader and Coordinator for the Clover Kid Program
·    Superintendent of the Clothing Events at the Fair
·    Style Show organizer and coordinator, as well as helping the 4-H’ers learn how to model their clothing
·    Record Book Evaluator
·    Area Awards Evaluator
·    Ida County 4-H Leader for 15 years

One of Mary’s 4-H club members was quoted as saying, “Mary Dreeszen is a wonderful lady to be with and she is always giving great advice and words of encouragement every day.”
