COLUMBIA, Mo. — Joan Zeller of Lafayette County was honored with a 2017 Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award on March 17 in Columbia. Zeller was one of three volunteers recognized for her commitment to the University of Missouri Extension 4-H youth development program.
“It is our great pleasure to recognize these outstanding volunteers for their important contributions of time, talent and financial resources to Missouri 4-H,” said Dr. Marla Tobin, chair of the Missouri 4-H Foundation Board of Trustees.
For more than 20 years, Joan Zeller has served the Lafayette County 4-H program as a club leader, county shooting sports coordinator and project leader for shooting sports, gardening and robotics. As a county coordinator, Zeller developed a committee of youth and adult volunteers to establish the Lafayette County Range Masters 4-H special interest club. Under her leadership, the club has grown from a handful of youth in 1997 to more than 90 members participating in shooting sports each year.
The Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award is given annually to volunteers and organizations that have made notable contributions to Missouri 4-H youth. 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.
