Kissel to be Inducted into National 4-H Hall of Fame
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 10/12/2021

A Wisconsin 4-H volunteer with more than sixty-five years of service is being inducted into the National 4-H Hall of Fame. Nancy Kissel of Sheboygan County will be Wisconsin's first volunteer selected for this honor.

Kissel started a 4-H community club, serving as 4-H general leader for 35 years, and many more years as 4-H project leader. Her expansive 4-H volunteer contributions include roles at the county, state, and national levels. Kissel credits her 1970s part-time position as an urban expansion 4-H Staff Assistant, developing programs and organizing 4-H clubs for underserved urban and minority populations, with further developing her leadership skills.

Donna Menart nominated Kissel for the national honor. She says Kissel's character is evident in everything she does.

"Nancy lives the ideals of 4-H. Her contributions as a volunteer are impressive in longevity, but even more so in terms of the quality and depth of her ability to create sustaining systems that support the educational mission of 4-H on all levels," Menart said. "Her contributions have benefitted untold numbers of 4-H youth and adults."

Meanwhile, Nancy also served on the writing team for the national curriculum for Horseless Horse. State volunteer leadership roles include member of the Wisconsin State Horse Council, past president of the Wisconsin 4-H Horse Association and past director of the Midwest Horse Fair.

The Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Tuesday.
