Winneshiek County is honored to present this year’s Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame inductee, Beth Einck. Beth has served as the dog superintendent for Winneshiek County since 1989. When the dog program began there were 6 participants and 2 classes. The program has grown to 18 classes and over 40 exhibitors including her grandson Karter. Beth has spent countless hours training with the youth, having weekend workshops and the program has grown so much she has had to get additional volunteers.
Beth helps with 4H programs in other counties and is the dog program superintendent for the Big Four Fair in Postville. Each year Beth has several of her 4Hers participate in the Iowa State Fair dog show.
Beth was a 4H member for many years in Fayette County. Beth also trains and shows her own dogs in AKC obedience and has gotten several AKC titles on her dogs throughout the years.
Beth and her husband Gerry, live in Decorah. Their family includes sons Russell and friend Jessica, Ryan and wife Michelle, daughter Suzanne and husband Chad. They have five grandchildren, Keagen, Karter, Alexis, Conner and Karlie. All five grandchildren are involved in the 4H program.
Beth also volunteers at St. Benedict’s Catholic Church and has been on the Winneshiek County Fair Board Auxiliary for many years.
