COLUMBIA, Mo. — Nancy Wilkerson of Monroe County was honored with a 2017 Naomi Crouch 4-H Volunteer Leadership Award on March 17 in Columbia. Wilkerson 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.
Nancy Wilkerson has served the Monroe County 4-H program for more than three decades. After working as youth education assistant, she became a stay-at-home mom, but her dedication to 4-H continued, spanning 30 years as a volunteer leader.
Wilkerson served under Max Miller as an assistant superintendent of the 4-H livestock program. She helped Charlie Rosenkrans implement the first computerized records for the swine program at the Missouri State Fair. She also served as a club leader for the Happy-Go-Lucky 4-H Club, a Monroe County 4-H Council member and, most recently, held the office of 4-H Council vice president.
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.
