Dean Weber has dedicated his professional and personal life to empowering youth. By encouraging the best in youth and providing opportunities for self-directed learning for over 40 years, Dean served the 4-H youth development organization in a variety of capacities, as a 4-H club volunteer for the Geneseo Haymakers/Rockwell Rough Riders, North Iowa Fair Swine Superintendent, Iowa State Fair Dairy Show Superintendent, Livestock & Horticulture Judge at County Fairs and encouragement to 4-H youth staff in Cerro Gordo County. Dean inspires 4-H youth to love learning, challenges 4-H youth to set learning goals, enables and supports 4-H Youth in their plans to achieve goals, holds them accountable to working towards those goals, and celebrates and appreciates 4-H Youth in what they have accomplished.
Dean embodies the essential elements of the 4-H Youth Development experience – being that caring adult who provides constructive learning and leadership opportunities in generous service to his family and community.
Dean has demonstrated the fortitude, steadfastness and commitment needed to bring positive change to existing realities in the lives of 4-H youth.
Now as a 4-H grandparent, Dean continues a legacy of empowering 4-H youth in animal and horticultural projects, even donating his own property and facilities in order to enable 4-H youth who do not have the opportunity to raise them on their own. Dean has and continues to enable 4-H project possibilities to become 4-H project realities.
