[August 03, 2019]
County 4-H Sheep Superintendent John Coers, along with Logan County
4-H members, gathered with family and friends at the sheep barn for
the 2019 Fair Sheep Show on Thursday morning.
John asked for a round of applause, several times,
for the youngsters showing sheep saying, “These kids are the reason
I get up in the morning.” It was obvious that he was very proud of
each 4-H member. Coers and his wife, Annie, who assists as the
recorder, were inducted into the Illinois 4-H Foundation 2018 Hall
of Fame for their exemplary service to the Illinois 4-H program.
They have been volunteering with Logan County 4-H for over 15 years.
