Dale Anderson grew up as a 4-H’er in DeKalb County, Illinois where he and his wife, Carol, were active members in the same club. He was an active 4-H’er who learned the value of 4-H early on in life, which followed him into adulthood.
His passion for 4-H was passed down from his mother who also served as a 4-H leader in Illinois. Dale was involved in 4-H as soon he could and continued to be involved until he graduated high school. Dale had projects involving sheep, cattle, and even a static exhibit strictly focusing on knots! He has given countless hours to the youth of Mitchell County through his involvement as a club leader of the Osage Warhawks for over 19 years.
Dale and Carol, raised four children together; Liz, Erin, Phil, and Eve. He passed that 4-H legacy down to each one his children and encouraged them to be involved in 4-H as soon as they could. Dale and Carol presently have a granddaughter involved in 4-H in Wright County and a grandson who is eager to be old enough to join. Through his great attitude and involvement as a club leader Dale also shared the value of 4-H with many other Mitchell County youth by helping with projects and being a dedicated 4-H leader.
Mitchell County Extension & Outreach would like to thank Dale Anderson for his years of service given to the 4-H program in Mitchell County.
