Soo GreimanSoo Greiman began her 4-H career in the 1960's in Black Hawk County as an "Orange Bud", later was an "Orange Petal" and graduated to an "Orange Blossom", with projects like swine, horse, beef, home improvement, foods and nutrition and clothing.
When her 3 children, Dusty, Kate and Cassi were old enough to participate in 4-H, she began assisting with Hudson area clubs. She now provides leadership to the Youth Committee, Horse and Pony Committee, and Swine Committee. For the past year, she chaired the 100th Anniversary Planning Committee for Black Hawk County Extension and the 4-H/FFA Fair. For 12 years, Soo served as 4-H Foods judge to various county 4-H Fairs around north central/northeast and central Iowa. Greiman was the 1973 Iowa pork queen and the 1974 National pork queen. She holds a BA from Iowa State University in Ag Communication and is the owner of a family farm operation in Waterloo: K-Line Farms.
Since 1979, she has worked at the Hudson Herald newspaper as photographer/feature writer. Annually, the Herald features a section on area youth achievements at the Black Hawk Fair, which means she is snapping pictures of 4-H families. Her newspaper column, "The Soo Line" has been wide ranging and personal, addressing all kinds of related situations/events/projects in the community.

Other past and current leadership positions include the Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area Foundation Board, Black Hawk County Farm Bureau board, Black Hawk County 4-H/FFA Fair Queen Committee, Black Hawk County Pork Producers board and Sunday School teacher.
