Angie Keeney believes in teaching young people skills that will be beneficial to them throughout their lives. She learned as a 10 year member of the Blue Grass Sunshine Workers 4-H club that 4-H is an organization that strives to provide youth with good information for their lives.
As a mother and 4-H leader, she has continued to pass this on to others. One of the ways she contributed to this goal is serving as the coordinator of the county fashion revue judging and show. Scheduling busy participants, working with judges and planning the show takes a large amount of time and energy. In addition, she makes a display of all the participants at the county fair. A favorite project for Angie is the $15 Challenge as she sees so much learning as the 4-H members shop and learn the value of buying second-hand clothes. She sometimes even models her own $15 outfits as she presents awards to the winners at the show.
In addition to her work with the fashion show, Angie has given 10 years as a 4-H leader and has served as a role model for all those in her club as she demonstrates commitment and volunteer spirit. Those things have also been passed on to her three children, who volunteer in the 4-H program.
Being a 4-H leader, while also working full time as a teacher, can be a challenging situation, yet Angie keeps a smile on her face, a pleasant attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile when there is a need.
Scott County 4-H is pleased to have Angie as one of their volunteers and proud to have her inducted into the 2019 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.
