Ozaukee County 4-H Volunteer

Mardell Glander has been part of Ozaukee County 4-H since she was 10 years old. Her 4-H career started with the Lakeview North 4-H Club; after two years, she transferred to the Waubeka 4-H Club. After graduating from high school, Mardell took on the role of adult leader with the Waubeka 4-H Club and has served 50 years as a Food Preservation and Cake Decorating Leader.

Mardell has touched hundreds of young adults in her 4-H career. Though she retired from the workforce at age 61, she enjoyed working with youth too much to give up 4-H. She says there’s always one individual she connects with that keeps her engaged as a volunteer.

4-H youth and alumni in Ozaukee County call Mardell an inspiration. Her talents and skills have been shared with many. Mardell says 4-H is part of who she is, and 4-H in Ozaukee County and in Wisconsin is all the better for it.
