Tom Manley has been a dedicated Clay County 4-H volunteer and advocate for over 20 years. He has readily endorsed the local program and exhibited the values of the 4-H program as a member of the Clay County Community.
As a volunteer, Tom has been dependable to help with the 4-H/FFA District Beef show, or with weigh-ins for swine or beef. He models, for the members, a dedication to community service and life-long learning by giving his time to many ISU Extension and community programs and groups involving agriculture, such as the Clay County Cattlemen, Ag-Citing and the Ag Learning Center.
By serving the community through work with numerous service groups and committees, and leading program and partnering efforts that impact the quality of life for Clay County residents and businesses, he serves as a great example for 4-H youth in our area.
As an advocate for the 4-H program and through his work on the Blue Ribbon Committee and Auction Committee, Tom has worked to enhance the acknowledgment that goes towards the 4-H members, to encourage them to continue reaching higher with their life goals and to achieve their full potential in everything that they do.
It is with great pride that we recognize Tom Manley as the 2011 4-H Hall of Fame selection from Clay County!
