Joan Punt has been an integral part of the Sioux County 4-H program for over 20 years. She started out as a 4-H member of the Hull Clovers 4-H Club.
When the need arose for a leader for the Sioux Stockman, Joan took time out of her busy family and nursing schedule to volunteer and help guide young minds in their 4-H years. Joan knew the importance of the skills she learned in 4-H herself and was happy to share them with the young members.
Joan inspires her members by entering in the Open Class each year at the Sioux County Fair with the Bucket of Flowers project. Joan is a direct and ongoing leader of the club and has trained the new club leaders in the most efficient way to run the meetings.
Joan and her husband were active in implementing the Partners in Education group and started the Blue Grass Concert Fundraiser, both for the Ireton Christian School. She spent many hours in the church as church librarian, nursery caretaker and leader for Pioneer Club. She was also an active member of the Town and Country Booster Club in Maurice Iowa.
