Our Benton County Hall of Fame nominee became involved in 4-H in the late 1980s as a member of the Eldorado Young Master Farmers 4-H Club. His project was showing dairy cattle which was a natural progression from living and working on the family dairy farm with his dad and uncle.
He became even further involved in 4-H on a county level after graduating from high school. He has always been first in line to assist whenever there is a call for help, whether composing questions for County Youth Council interviews, helping with livestock weigh-in days, or emceeing at the Benton County Fair. As advisor to the Youth County Council, he instills his strong values to the youth by challenging them to set a good example and not be afraid to try new experiences. He will always be famous for his Youth Council interview question “if you were a flower what would you be?”.
He also gives his time freely as an active member of the 4-H Youth Committee, serving on the Benton County 4-H Foundation Board, Benton County Extension Council (currently as chair) and being a prominent fixture at the Benton County Fair. Brian is always there. On a side note, Brian has never met a Demo Derby he didn’t like.
Brian is humble in his accomplishments and contributions to our youth programs. We are proud to introduce and offer a heartfelt thank you to our Benton County Hall of Fame recipient, Brian McNulty.
