Klott Inducted Into Missouri 4-H Hall Of Fame At State Fair

Mike Klott of Bowling Green is one of 43 people inducted Saturday, Aug. 17 into the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame, reflecting their decades of support to their county clubs and national organization. 

Klott, a 25 year employee of Woods Smoked Meats, has worked in the curing phase of the operation. He has spent many of those years helping area 4-Her’s with their hams and bacon.

He was also asked to help judge this year at the state first which is a first for Klott.

Missouri 4-H Foundation Director Rachel Augustine says the honorees contributed to their clubs in multiple ways. Augustine notes that each county had an opportunity to nominate someone for the honor.

 The Missouri 4-H Hall Of Fame was established in 2007.
