—Craig, Flossie Morrison to be inducted
CRESCO - Craig and Flossie Morrison of Howard County will be inducted into the 2020 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame during a virtual ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 23. Eighty-six Iowa counties are participating this year and have selected 117 inductees for their outstanding service and dedication to 4-H.
Two ceremonies will be streamed online to recognize this year’s honorees. The Morrisons will be recognized during the 1:30 p.m. event. Visit www.iowa4hfoundation.org the day of the ceremony to locate the event.
Counties select inductees for their exceptional work in contributing to the lives of 4-H members and the overall 4-H program. Many inductees served as club leaders, youth mentors, fair superintendents or fair board members, Iowa State University Extension county council members, county youth council members, fair judges, financial supporters, chaperones or ISU Extension staff members.
The inductees have demonstrated dedication, encouragement, commitment and guidance to Iowa’s 4-H’ers through the years. “Iowa 4-H volunteers and staff greatly impact our youth and this is one way we can recognize them for their remarkable service and commitment,” said Tillie Good, program manager, Iowa 4-H Youth Development.
The Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame was initiated in 2002 to help commemorate the 100th anniversary of 4-H. Information about previous inductees to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame also is available on the Iowa 4-H Foundation website, organized by year and by county.
