Combining a love for 4-H, young people, communications, photography and record books, you have Tama Counties 2018 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame inductee, Paulette Wobeter.
Paulette was a leader of the Toledo Techs 4-H Club for nearly 15 years. During her time as a leader, she had a very large, active group. She was very organized and kept everyone on track with just a yearly program booklet.
As one of her past club members shared, “Paulette made sure that we followed the 4-H way of giving a presentation. Paulette strongly encouraged and helped youth take active roles in communication as she realized the importance of this life skill”. Another member shared, “she was a shy 4-H member until she joined the Toledo Techs. Paulette encouraged her to become an officer and to take a presentation to the county fair”. She remembers practicing her presentation in front of Paulette several times and then going on to the Iowa State Fair and Cattle Congress. It was a life skill that has helped this member and many more.
Paulette also understood the importance of the 4-H record book and fair write-ups. She took the time to help members prepare for fair and work on record keeping. Every member knew that photos were an important way to share their 4-H story. She did her best to help the club members succeed.
Paulette knew how important family was to the 4-H program. Each Christmas, she made sure the members made a gift to share with their parents at the annual Christmas program. Paulette shared her love for 4-H with her sons, Curt and Craig. Both were active in the Toledo Techs and members of the Tama County Council.
It is an honor to have her inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame! Thank you Paulette for your dedication to the youth of Tama County.
