Aaron Nunemacher was recognized as the Kiwanis Sunrisers of Winona 4-H Youth Representative for the month of December. Aaron is the son of Mark and Theresa Nunemacher. He is a member of the Little Valley Victors 4-H Club and a senior at St. Charles High School.
Nunemacher has served as the Little Valley Victors 4-H Club treasurer and president in previous years. In 4-H, he has exhibited a variety of projects at the county and state fair including digital photography, shooting sports and wildlife, gardening, food and nutrition, shop, performing arts and more. Nunemacher has also attended 4-H Regional Camp, Regional Officer Training, Winter Project Day, federation meetings, BLU, and participated in the club’s community pride projects as well as the 4-H food stand at the Winona County Fair. Community pride projects involve ditch cleanup, adopt a highway, and a holiday service project. Nunemacher said, “It’s a time to give back to my community and help those less fortunate than me.” 4-H has given Nunemacher the opportunity to practice and expand his leadership skills. Being an older member of the Little Valley Victors 4-H Club, he is proud to be a positive role model for younger kids. “Looking back on when I was a younger kid, I looked up to the older kids, now I am the older kid and I hope I offer the same leadership they showed me,” he said.
Winona Sunrisers Kiwanis Club honors one outstanding Winona County 4-H member during its breakfast meeting on the fourth Wednesday of each month. The club meets every Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Winona Family Restaurant in Winona.
