Evalena Tatum Vann



For more than 30 years, Mrs. Evalena Tatum Vann was involved with the Sarasota County 4-H program. Mrs. Vann and her husband, Charlie, worked with countless children during that time as club leaders of the Sarasota 4-H Livestock Club. Mrs. Vann was an active member of the Sarasota County 4-H Foundation, the local Fair Board and the Bee Ridge Women’s Club. She was nominated by Mr. Casey Welch — one her many 4-H’ers — for her service to her community in the fields of education, history and community service. Mrs. Vann helped to build and sustain the 4-H program in Sarasota County. For many years, the Vann family provided urban 4-H youth with the opportunity to keep their livestock projects at their family home; allowing these 4-H’ers to have the experience with livestock that they otherwise would not have had living in the city. In addition to being an active member in the 4-H community, during her long volunteer career, Mrs. Vann received many awards that recognized the impact of her citizenship and her hours of volunteering. It is with great pleasure that Florida 4-H adds to her accolades tonight by inducting Mrs. Evalena Tatum Vann into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame. Mrs. Vann’s medallion is being accepted tonight by daughter, Holly Logan, and son-in-law Jay Logan.

"... She fostered my dream, as she did other 4-Her's dreams..."
