Alabama 4-H Wall of Fame

Sue Wills

DeKalb County 4-H Volunteer

Inducted May 14, 2009

Sue Wills has been involved in DeKalb County 4-H for more than 40 years. As a teacher in Ruhama School in Dogtown, Ala., she served as the 4-H volunteer and coordinator for the school.

Wills’ name is synonymous with 4-H throughout the county. Everyone has a story about her helping them complete a record book, construct a project, practice a speech or select the special photo to enter the contest. 4-H members under her leadership received state and national awards.

She served on the board of the Alabama 4-H Volunteer Leaders Association. She assisted with planning many of the Alabama forums and attended the Southern Region 4-H Volunteer Forum.

Wills continues to substitute at Ruhama and encourages 4-H youth. The cast-iron school gates hold a 4-H clover to remind the students “To Make the Best Better” every day as they pass through.
