COLUMBIA, Mo. — Ann Niemeyer-Glass of Pike County was named a 2016 Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award recipient on March 18 in Columbia. Niemeyer-Glass was recognized for her commitment to the University of Missouri Extension 4-H youth development program.
“It is our great pleasure to honor Ann with the Naomi Crouch award for her dedication to Missouri 4-H,” said Marla Tobin, chair of the Missouri 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees. “Volunteers like Ann have made Missouri 4-H the quality experience for which it is so well-known, and we are indebted to her for her years of service.”
Ann Niemeyer-Glass has dedicated nearly 40 years of service to the Pike County 4-H program. During her tenure she has served as a project leader and club leader for the Busy Bee Hustlers 4-H Club. She has also served as an adviser to the Youth 4-H Council and has been very active on the Pike County 4-H Council, serving as chair several times. Thanks to her tireless efforts, the Pike County fundraiser has become a well-oiled machine, reaching a $9,000 goal for Pike County 4-H.
The Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award is given annually to volunteers and organizations that devote their time and talents to MU Extension’s 4-H youth development program. The award is named in honor of Naomi Crouch, a Plattsburg native who was an active 4-H volunteer and Missouri 4-H Foundation trustee for more than 20 years.
