(Le Mars) — The Iowa State Fair and the Iowa 4-H Organization will honor those people to be inducted to the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame on Sunday afternoon.  The ceremonies will take place at the 4-H Building, located on the State Fair Grounds.  One of this year’s inductees to the 4-H Hall of Fame is quite familiar to Plymouth County as being a long-time employee of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.  Plymouth County 4-H and Youth Director and Co-Coordinator Ann Schoenrock says former extension director Carol Schneider has been nominated.

Schoenrock says it was Schneider who implemented so many programs that ultimately benefitted the Plymouth County 4-H program.  Schoenrock says the honor is a way for Plymouth County to say “thank you” to Carol Schneider.
