Coreen Schumacher, Venturia, has received North Dakota's 2017 Outstanding Lifetime 4-H Volunteer Award.

She was honored Nov. 10 during the North Dakota 4-H Foundation's donor recognition social in Fargo.

Schumacher has had many roles as a 4-H volunteer, including serving as leader of the Flickertail 4-H Club for 15 years. She also has been involved in 4-H community gardens, 4-H baking and craft projects for the elderly at nursing homes, the Flickertail 4-H Club's aluminum can collection project, 4-H Awards Night and 4-H bell-ringing and singing for the Salvation Army.

In addition, she has served on the McIntosh County 4-H Council and a search committee for a new Extension agent, and was 4-H communication arts coordinator and group leader for the 4-H aerospace program.

"She's encouraged youth in so many different 4-H project areas, highlighting their interests and providing opportunities for them to grow and learn at both county and state levels," said Karen Bettenhausen, the family and consumer sciences agent in McIntosh County Extension office.

Schumacher also is McIntosh County's superintendent of schools, a homemaker, farmwife and partner, bookkeeper and teacher, and has been a vacation Bible school director, Pathfinder youth group leader, church treasurer, science fair judge, math tutor, third- and four-grade spelling bee coordinator and women's Bible study coordinator.
