Dwayne and Andrea Wright have lived a life of service to the Henry County 4-H program and the Henry County Fair. Dwayne was the talented volunteer 4-H Leader of the New London Pioneers for over 10 years. During that time, he organized the Henry County Fair Swine Committee, New Lonfon Pioneer ski trips, implemented successful yearly sweet corn fundraisers, and provided mentorship to numerous young 4-H’ers.
Andrea, Dwayne's wife assisted in the club leader role while also serving on the Henry County Fair Board for the last 15 years. During her 2020 term as Fair Board President, Andrea used her exceptional problem-solving skills to provide the safest fair possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Continuing the long family tradition of agricultural and 4-H history, Dwayne and Andrea raised their three children Kaitlin, Corey and Aaren, to be active Henry County 4-H members whom participated in livestock shows, Share the Fun, and static exhibits.
On fall Saturdays you can find the Wright’s working on the 150+ year old farm, enjoying time with family, or in the stands cheering on Iowa State Cyclone Football. Dwayne is currently retired from the 4-H volunteer role but you can still find him pitching in at the Henry County Fair while Andrea maintains her seat on the Henry County Fair Board. The Wright’s truly exemplify the 4-H value of HANDS to larger service, and for this we say thank you!
