Buchanan CountyDonnie and Michelle Mangrich have volunteered countless hours to Buchanan County 4-H, Extension, and the community. 

Donnie is committed to the sheep program and held the title of superintendent for many years. He always, always supports the kids and the welfare of the livestock. As superintendent, he held annual education classes for the 4-H’ers on sheep husbandry and assisted with securing a grant for the sheep scale. He continues to serve on the sheep committee and is instrumental in the maintenance of the sheep barn and shaping 4-H’ers. Donnie serves as a mentor to all.

Michelle has served on the Extension Council since 2005 and was council chair for ten years. While on council she was an active member of the finance committee and currently serves on the program committee. Michelle was also co-superintendent for horses providing 4-H’ers with knowledge and skills necessary to succeed. She was an advocate for the new horse arena and continues to serve on the horse committee. 

Not only are Donnie and Michelle both always available and supportive for the 4-H kids, their own children were also quite active in 4-H showing several species. Their commitment to 4-H is notable as they are still actively volunteering today to make the best better.
