Being a volunteer takes someone with a big heart, enthusiasm, a positive attitude and a passion for “making the best better”. Benton County has been lucky enough to have many volunteers that meet that description but one in particular has gone above and beyond for many years. Duane Fisher has worn many hats over his 40+ years of being a part of the Benton County 4-H Program.
Duane Fisher served as 4-H/FFA Poultry Superintendent, 4-H/FFA Dog and Pet Superintendent, 4-H/FFA Horse and Pony Superintendent. He currently is involved with the 4-H Committee Chairperson, 3rd Grade Ag Day committee member, Farm Safety Day committee member and Benton County 4-H Foundation Board member as well as numerous other boards, event committees and activities within the community including 37 years as the Vinton-Shellsburg FFA Advisor before retiring.
Mr. Fisher has a great passion for working with youth and wants each of them to grow, learn, and achieve their dreams. He has been a true asset and given so much to the youth in Benton County over the years that it is impossible to acknowledge all of his contributions. Bestowing this honor to Mr. Fisher is one way to thank him for all he has done for the youth in Benton County. We are truly grateful for all that he has given to our 4-H program, the community and the youth in Benton County over the years.
Thank you Mr. Fisher!
