You could say that 4-H was the start of this active family. Scott and Jacki first met on a 4-H roller skating trip when they were in 6th grade.
After completing their degrees at Iowa State University they returned to the Humboldt area and have been involved community members ever since. They are active members of Faith United Methodist Church, have been a part of the Relay for Life committee and sponsored several calves in the “Share a Calf Program”.
Scott was member of West Grove Hustler’s 4-H Club, showed cattle, pigs and sheep, and participated in communication projects. He took part in the Chicago Awards trip and attended State 4-H Conference. He was a leader of Springvale Co-Ed 4-H Club. He is a member of the Lions Club, and recently retired after 26 years as an insurance agent. Scott has been a member of the Humboldt County 4-H Foundation since it was created in 2008. He is currently the treasure of this organization.
Jacki was a member of Beaver Wide Awake’s 4-H Club. She enjoyed working on her static exhibits for the fair which led her to Iowa State to earn a degree in Home Economics. A highlight of her 4-H career was attending State 4-H Conference and traveling on the Chicago award trip. She was a member of Jacyee Women. She served as the vice president and manager of Power Coop Credit Union for 36 years. She retired early this year.
Their oldest daughter, Andrea, was an active 4-H member of the Springvale Co-Ed Club and served on State 4-H Council, Jill was also an active member of Girl Scouts and received the Gold Award.
They have 5 grandsons and a granddaughter, with each daughter having a set of twins. They are looking forward to following their grandchildren’s activities and continue their love for agriculture on their hobby farm.
