Lisa started her 4-H career as a Jackson June Bug over 40 years ago in rural Clarke County so she is a lifetime 4-Her. She served as Central Iowa 4-H leader in State Center for a little over 10 years. The club grew to over 50 members while she was a leader and became the largest club in Marshall County. She actively recruited members and helped start a separate Clover kids group to encourage future 4-Hers.
Lisa helped re-open the Clover Café at the fairgrounds for a few years, and she always involved the Central IA 4-H club in every project that needed to be completed. She never just went through the motions in any activity. Meetings were always informative, and every member got the “opportunity” to do a presentation each year, and no one missed out. Lisa has served on the Marshall County Youth Development Committee and has judged non-livestock projects at numerous county fairs around Iowa in recent years.
Lisa loved the 4-Hers rather than the 4-H rule book which is why she had such a big impact on the kids she encountered as a leader, council member, and fair judge. Watching one of her Clover Kids grow into a productive, upstanding young man or woman gives her great pride and enjoyment.
Marshall County is very proud to have Lisa as an active volunteer, and mentor to not only 4-H youth, but our staff and volunteers. Thank you Lisa!
