MEET YOUR NEIGHBOR: Glenn McCulloh

DEWITT — Glenn McCulloh, 76, of DeWitt, values the Iowa 4-H program.

Growing up in a family where he and his brothers were actively involved in 4-H, Glenn gained an appreciation of the program. He became a member of the Mohawk Club in the 1950s. He showed cattle at the club show and remembers the thrill of showing at the International in Chicago.

And now, he was recently inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame. He was selected by the Clinton County Extension office. 

Glenn was surprised and honored to be inducted into the hall of fame.

"I felt that I had gained the respect of the other 4-H people," Glenn said.

Glenn and his late wife, Florence, were involved in 4-H for some time, with him leading the Mohawk Club from 1961-1971.  He also volunteered for years at the Clinton County Fair.

"I feel I've been helpful to the 4H program," Glenn said. "Wherever I could be a help."

After Glenn retired from being a leader to pursue some leadership roles for the youth committee and the extension council, Florence continued  to be involved with sewing projects, the fashion revue and clothing selection events for many years. 

Glenn and his family give an annual award in Florence's memory to a 4-H member who excels in the clothing/sewing project area.

Glenn's love of 4-H has continued through his four children and many of his grandchildren. Out of seven grandchildren, five have been involved in projects showing cattle to woodworking, photography, working demonstrations and sewing projects. 

Glenn loves the county fair and takes pride in watching his grandchildren with their own projects.

Glenn now resides in DeWitt with his wife of 16 years, Lavonne.
