Webster County is proud to announce the induction of Richard and Colleen Eslick into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame.
Richard and Colleen Eslick are the true definitions of a 4-H’er for life. The Eslicks have been a multi-generational Webster County 4-H family. Richard began his life-long 4-H involvement as a Webster County 4-H member in the mid-60s. He always had a passion for the program and his involvement didn't stop at just being a member. Richard has put forth countless hours as a volunteer. He has been involved with the shooting sports program since its origin and currently serves as one of the project leaders. Richard has a true passion for the shooting sports program and enjoys helping the 4-H members learn about shooting safety and discipline, as well as teaching them valuable life skills.
Colleen Eslick, Richard's wife, also shares the same passion and support for the 4-H program. Although Colleen was not a 4-H member herself, she received the Webster County Honorary 4-H Member award in 1998. For many years, Colleen served as a club leader for the Dayton Tigers 4-H club. She also was involved with the swine committee alongside her husband. Currently, Colleen is one of the project leaders for the Aerospace program, which she too, has a passion for.
Along with being donors to the program, Richard and Colleen are always willing to help, lead, and support the young people involved in Webster County 4-H. The two are more than humbled to receive this honor, and said, they do all that they have done because they love the 4-H program and enjoy the opportunities they have gotten to help others in any way possible.
