Ron and Bev Shivers exhibit outstanding service to the Polk County 4-H program and have done so for several decades. The Shivers’ investment in youth development is that of time, support and monetary contributions. From donating Polk County Fair t-shirts for exhibitors to buying livestock from 4-H members, the Shivers make the best better for youth involved in 4-H in Polk and surrounding counties.
The Shivers own DeeZee, the company that has donated fair exhibitor t-shirts for several years. Additionally, DeeZee served the meat from Ron’s county fair livestock auction purchases in its cafeteria for a span of years. Ron ensured his investment in 4-H positively affected many people, both in and out of 4-H. And while the Shivers’ grandchildren’s livestock are often purchased by their grandparents, the Shivers also purchase livestock shown by youth who take the time to look into the stands and smile at the crowd. If there is a dedicated youth showing their animal, the Shivers are bound to notice.
Polk County 4-H proudly nominates Ron and Bev Shivers for the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame because they have impacted and continue to influence Polk County 4-H youth of all ages.
