Getting to know other people, working with them and learning from them is this honorees favorite part about 4-H. She was a Mills County Indian 4-H member, helped with fundraisers, traveled to the National 4-H Center in Washington DC, was an Iowa photography delegate to National 4-H Congress and held each of the offices in her club. Her record book is full of her 4-H history including photography, home improvement, food and nutrition, clothing, communication, citizenship and leadership activities.
Jackie Stevens served on the Grundy County 4-H Youth Committee for several years, was leader of the Clay Busy Bees 4-H Club from 2002-2012 and has continued to volunteer as the static exhibit building coordinator at the fair. She is always willing to help, especially when it includes supporting youth in Grundy County. She continues to share her 4-H spirit through working with the theater club at the BCLUW high school.
Jackie believes 4-H has a whole lot to offer people, both youth and adults. 4-H molded a lot of who she is because of the service, communication, leadership and character that it strives to instill in 4-H members.
