Wayne County would like to recognize Barry and Tracy for their numerous contributions to the Wayne County Fair and 4-H youth.
The couple met in 1992 and resided on their family farm where they raised their children Makayla and Kyle. They manage a row crop and cow/calf herd operation. Barry and Tracy enjoyed watching and supporting their children while they exhibited beef, swine, and sheep throughout their 4-H involvement.
Barry has been a part of the Wayne County Fair since he was participating in 4-H himself. Throughout Barry’s childhood he was involved in the beef show and various community service projects around the fair. After high school, he served on the Wayne County Fair Board where he actively supported the growth of the program during the fair as well as other events throughout the year. Barry led the Fair Board as President for two years. He also supported the 4-H program while serving as the Beef Superintendent and continues to volunteer as a Scales Superintendent and provides support to various fair fundraising efforts.
Shortly after their children started 4-H, Tracy became the club leader for the Warren Willpower 4-H Club where she explored new ideas, inspired 4-H members to participate in various activities, and was an active supporter of community service. Tracy continues to help with the children’s crafting tent and supervising the 4-H exhibit building.
Both are longtime supporters of the youth at the Wayne County Fair. The couple sponsor awards for the Wayne County Fair and donate to the Blue Ribbon Foundation. Wayne County is proud to recognize Barry and Tracy Andrews who advocate for the Wayne County 4-H Program and all 4-H youth.
