Shelly Schall grew up in Boone County and was a member of the Yell Modernattes 4-H Club. Shelly became a 4-H volunteer when her daughters (Amanda and Megan) joined the Southside Pioneers 4-H Club. Over the next 18 years, Shelly held many different volunteers roles. She was a leader of the Southside Pioneers 4-H Club for twelve years, helping 4-H’ers learn the Family Consumer Science project areas and after evaluating record books nominate members for county awards. Shelly always encouraged 4-H’ers to set goals, keep good records and include lots of pictures. After evaluating their record books, she took time to explain to the youth how to improve recordkeeping skills.
For four years, she served on the Boone County 4-H Youth Committee and evaluated support materials for county awards. During that time she also helped interview 4-H’ers from the Central Iowa Area applying for State 4-H Council.
Shelly served as the Boone County Fair 4-H Family and Consumer Science Superintendent for ten years. As a superintendent, Shelly helped plan judging day and worked closely with judges, volunteers, leaders, parents, and members to make the judging process run smoothly and be a positive experience for youth. Even on the hot, humid days of July, she always kept her cool and had a smile!
Shelly is active in her church and farms with her husband, Dan, near Ogden, Iowa.
