Donald and Rita Johnston

20-Year Leaders

Donald and Rita are 20-year leaders in Grover Guys N Gals 4-H Club.  Both of them were 10 year members of Weld County 4-H and found it a passion to stay involved with the program.  Rita has been an Organizational Leader for 11 years while also being a project leader in areas such as clothing, foods, cake decorating and rabbits.  Donald has been a Goat Superintendent for 18 years and served on the Weld County Fairboard for 8 years.  Both feel it’s a great feeling to watch the kids grow through the program and remembering, the program is for the kids and about the kids.   Outside of 4-H, they enjoy spending time with family and showing livestock at other shows.  Youth development, community service, and helping the members have the very best 4-H experience they can are the most important
aspects of being a leader to them.
