This award, named in honor of Lois Fitzpatrick, is given to an adult and to a 4‐Her, who exhibit
characteristics that Lois exemplified. Lois Fitzpatrick, along with her husband Max, volunteered at the
Johnson County 4‐H Fair for many years. During judging week she would be behind the scenes making
name tags for the projects, displaying them, and organizing things. She could often be found in the 4‐H
fair office sorting papers, selecting honor group recipients, recording results, and helping to do anything
that needed to be done. At open class you would find her checking in photography and admiring the
beautiful photos. Lois was a talented lady herself, and loved to see the accomplishments of others.
Whether at the livestock shows, the auction, or the pet parade you would find Lois cheering kids on and
always encouraging or congratulating them. She was a friend of Purdue Extension, was involved at the
State Fair, participated in homemaker groups, women’s groups, volunteered at the museum,
participated in numerous church activities…and the list goes on and on. She had a quiet strength that
enriched the lives of countless others. She was indeed a servant leader!


The recipients of this award will be given a certificate at the Awards Program during the fair and their
names will be placed on a permanent plaque that will be displayed at the Johnson County Fair.
Nominations are due in the Johnson County Extension Office by June 30th.
