Whiteside Honored By 4H Foundation Board
Dale Whiteside, a charter member of the
Livingston County 4-H Foundation since its inception in 1997, was
honored for his 20 years of service at their recent meeting. Whiteside
received a framed set of 4-H stamps that had only been issued in 1952
to celebrate 50 years of 4-H in the USA. Whiteside was among those who
envisioned the need for a County 4-H Foundation to ensure that the
local 4-H youth would always have a qualified assistant to maximize
4-H opportunities for all members in Livingston County.
In 1997, no other county foundation existed in Missouri. The goal of
the Foundation has always been to raise $500,000 to fund a full-time
professional to work with the 4-H youth of Livingston County. The
foundation reports to date they have raised $333,000.
Whiteside is one of the foundations most avid supporters because of
his history of 4-H experiences himself. Under his leadership the
foundation is now celebrating 20 years of existence, supporting a
part-time assistant, and the 4-H membership and experiences continue
