There are some people that want it to happen, some that wish it to happen, and others that make it happen. That was Sue Wasson. A dedicated mother, volunteer, employee, and leader. Along with being the mother of two children, Sue gave her all for the cause. From 1982 - 1990 she was leader of the Wapello Well Doers which was the town girls club, and from 1984 – 1993 she was the leader of the Ottumwa Go Getters which was the town boys club.
Sue has shown her passion in other ways by joining the workforce. She became an employee working as the 4H Youth Program Assistant in the Wapello County Extension Office from August 1995 to December 2012. She also worked part time in the Monroe County Extension Office from January 2003 to December 2012. Sue has judged at county fairs for almost a decade. She also went above and beyond her county duties to give back to more than just Wapello County by working as the Child Development Superintendent at the Iowa State Fair for over a decade.
“Sue has a way of relating to children by bringing out their creative element. She is an excellent organizer, and is always willing to help and does more than her share,” said Barb Anderson, Wapello County Extension Nutrition and Health Field Specialist III.
Sue has since left her position with extension. But her commitment to the youth of Wapello County has never wavered as she continues to volunteer countless hours with the 4H program. She is a loving mother and grandmother, and has continued the relationships that she has had with the youth and families she worked with in the past.
