Webster County is pleased to announce the induction of Nicholas Schelle into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.
Nicholas began his 4-H volunteer work with the Webster County 4-H program in 2005 when he chaperoned the Chicago 4-H trip and joined the Webster County Youth Committee. Additionally, Nicholas has been involved in several volunteer roles including leading a 4-H Tech Project Club for nearly three years, assisting as a Citizenship Washington Focus trip chaperone in 2010, and chaperoning State 4-H Conference for over ten years. Nicholas has served as the Webster County Youth Committee president for several years. He provides incredible leadership skills and is a great a role model for our 4-H members.
Other areas he provides assistance include helping with the state fair dog show, assisting with the state fair’s “Little Hands on the Farm,” county fair judging, lending an extra hand during the Webster County Fair’s dog show, and the “Share the Fun” event. Nicholas is ready and willing to help whenever and wherever extra help is needed whether at the county fair or during other events throughout the year.
Nicholas is humble about his years of valuable volunteer service to the Webster County 4-H program. He considers volunteering a payback or repayment for the opportunities he received as a 4-H member. He has enjoying watching kids have the same experiences and fun that he once had. Nicholas explained, “It is an honor to have kids look up to me. It is no surprise that many of them are people that I look up to.”
When asked about a special memory throughout his volunteer years, Nicholas shared that he was flattered when former Webster County Youth Coordinator, Linda Cline, initially asked him to be a volunteer. He emphasized that he has enjoyed being a Webster County 4-H volunteer.
