Doug HoraMuscatine County Extension and Outreach is honored to nominate Doug Hora for the 2021 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.

Doug started his first official connection with Muscatine County    4-H in 1971 when he became a member of the Wilton Hustlers 4-H Club.  In 1998, he volunteered to be a leader for that very same club because his children were carrying on the 4-H tradition.  On his volunteer application, when asked why he was interested in a  4-H volunteer position he stated, he “would like to help guide youth in exploring all the different opportunities 4-H has to offer.”  And he has done just that, not only as a long-time club leader, but as a founding member of the Muscatine County 4-H Endowment committee.  

The Muscatine County 4-H Endowment was established in 2013.  Since that time, Doug has been a proud supporter of Muscatine County 4-H members and volunteers by conducting fundraising, organizing a fun run, assisting with a silent auction each year, as well as holding many leadership positions within the committee. His efforts have created a channel for youth to experience new opportunities, gain life-long skills, and explore places beyond the county line.  Doug recently stepped down from his position on the Muscatine County 4-H Endowment after 8 years of service.

Leading by example, Doug has inspired youth, and adults alike, to be stronger individuals and leaders in their communities.  Everyone who has had the pleasure of working with him has been moved by his quiet, humble desire to make the world a better place. Muscatine County 4-H is so grateful for his dedication to this organization and the impact he has made on the lives of its members, volunteers, and staff.
