Clegg joins North Idaho Fair & Rodeo Board of Directors

Pierce Clegg has joined the North Idaho Fair & Rodeo Board of Directors. Clegg has lived in Kootenai County for 50 years and brings to the board, 30 years of experience spent in county government, serving part of this as deputy, sergeant and three 4-year terms as Kootenai County Sheriff.

Cleggs has more than 10 years of volunteer service in various capacitates at the fairgrounds. He mentored young men in 4-H and Livestock programs, along with helping kids attain market pricing, all along purchasing many of their animals. His background is in agriculture as he has raised animals on his own ranch — to the present. Clegg said “as Sheriff, I never had a criminal case against any 4-H kids or families. Enough said.”

When asked what skills he can bring to our organization, Clegg replied “I have the knowledge to work on budgets, bring in new sponsors and am willing contribute financially.” He is motivated primarily by a strong desire to “serve my community.”

“Mr. Clegg is well-respected in our community and has a passion for maintaining the financial stewardship of the foundation. This, combined with his rural roots, will further strengthen our board and the confidence of our legacy donors, contributors and the community at large,” said Dwayne Glemser, board president.

Clegg is married to Lois, has six children, nine grandkids and four great-grandkids. His hobbies include ranch and farm animals, fishing and watching his grandson race cars.

The North Idaho Fair & Rodeo Foundation is a 501 (3) C and monies raised go toward capital improvements at the fairgrounds and educational opportunities for area youth.
