Joan Belding played a key role in maintaining and fostering the 4-H program in Taylor County. Her dedication to ensuring 4-Hers understand the core values of what 4-H stands for has always been at the forefront of her leadership role. Joan’s heart bleeds the 4 H’s of 4-H!
She currently lives on farm in rural southwest Iowa with her husband Rodney. She has 5 daughters who have all been involved in 4-H and has grandsons that are currently Taylor County 4-H members.
She was a 4-H leader for the Platte Peppy Pals 4-H Club for 20 years. Within those 20 years she did many community projects, such as painting and planting trees around Lenox and Sharpsburg. She continues to help support the 4-H clubs by helping with selling pop and popcorn at the Lenox Rodeo. Joan has also been involved with the 4-H Foundation. During her time with the foundation she helped write a grant and raise money for a new 4-H food stand at the Taylor County Fair.
Taylor County is grateful for all Joan has contributed over the years to the 4-H program.
