Kenosha County 4-H Volunteer

Nadine is a life-long supporter of the Kenosha County 4-H program who exemplifies the leadership and responsibility we admire in our leaders.

As a young adult Nadine distinguished herself by becoming one of 12 4-H’ers who were part of the national Report to the Nation team. This team travelled around the country, telling people about the impact of 4-H.

As an adult, Nadine and her husband served as leaders of the Bristol Challenge 4-H Club. They served as leaders of the county 4-H teen group for several years. This group of about 40 teens was only a little younger than them. One teen described Nadine as “being old enough to be old, but not too old to be old.”

Nadine was active on the state level, serving on the State 4-H Adult Leader Council as Secretary and President. She has lobbied before USDA four times to retain funding for 4-H programs.

Nadine is always there with a helpful word and generous disposition. Her kindness and hard work exemplify what 4-H is all about.
