Endowment honors Kruse, 4-H volunteers

Loren Kruse

Individual 4-H’ers and 4-H clubs may nominate a current or former volunteer leader to receive the first Successful Farming/Loren Kruse Outstanding 4-H Leader Award. The nomination deadline is Feb.1, 2013, and the award will be presented next summer at the 2013 Iowa 4-H Youth Conference.

The Meredith Corporation Foundation and Edwin T. Meredith Foundations permanently endowed the award to honor Kruse, who retired from Successful Farming after a 36-year career and has been a long-time 4-H supporter. The annual $1,000 award acknowledges 4-H volunteer leaders who have inspired 4-H’ers to reach potentials far beyond what they could achieve without guidance and encouragement from caring adult volunteers.
