Perhaps you’ve seen her coaching youngsters at the Stutsman County Fair’s livestock show. Or maybe you helped her 4-H group starve off hunger and Stock the Stock Trailer last year. Others might recognize Hatlewick because of her work with RSVP+ activities.
Hatlewick’s name is familiar within the community and it’s making headlines again.
Recognized for her involvement in 4-H, Future Farmers of America, the Stutsman County Fair, her church, local food pantries, Stutsman County Farm Bureau, RSVP+, the North Dakota Winter Show, the Jamestown Chamber Ag Energy Committee, a youth shooting program, North Dakota Junior Angus, Red River Valley Angus Association and Circle Cross Riding Club, the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce chose Hatlewick for its 2011 “Above and Beyond” Award.
“Every time I look through her nominations, I keep going over the same thing. She’s a doer — whatever is needed, she does it,” Chamber executive director Kimberly Saxberg told The Jamestown Sun.
Hatlewick, who works for Stutsman County’s North Dakota State Extension Service, said she enjoys working with young people across the state.
The chamber told the Sun it chose Hatlewick out of a myriad of applications.
Hatlewick, a Dakota Valley member, lives in rural Jamestown with husband, Bruce, son, Clay (a senior at Jamestown High School), and daughter, Sara (an eighth grader at Montpelier High School).
The Chamber will honor her at its annual banquet Thursday at Gladstone Inn & Suites, Jamestown.
