Schneider Inducted to Hall of Fame


Carol Schneider of rural Le Mars was named to the Plymouth County 4H Hall of Fame Wednesday.  Schneider filled many roles in 4H and Extension in Plymouth County since arriving a year or so after her graduation from Iowa State University.

Schneider served in Polk and Mills counties before coming to Plymouth County.

Schneider wore many hats in 4H and Extension: Educator, Group Leader, and she helped found the 4H Foundation.

She’s seen much change and growth in 4H and at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds.

Schneider describes what makes 4H and Extension so successful in Plymouth County.

After 42 years in Plymouth County, Schneider stills wants to participate in 4H and Fair activities.

Besides the honor of being named to the Plymouth County 4H Hall of Fame this week, Schneider was inducted into the Iowa 4H Hall of Fame in 2014.

Carol and John Schneider still farm in northern Plymouth County.  They have two children and 5 great-grandchildren.
