"Making the best better" for generations of Missouri 4-H club members, 44 volunteers joined the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame. The 2020 inductees, from 36 counties, have established a legacy totaling 1,008 years of service to 4-H.
Membership in the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have created a legacy of service to 4-H, said Rachel Augustine, director of the Missouri 4-H Foundation.
"These volunteers have played a vital role in helping our youth develop essential life skills that will empower them to become strong leaders in the 21st-century workforce, and we are proud to honor their service," Augustine said.
"Missouri 4-H's most valuable treasure is represented by more than 9,000 volunteers who provide mentorship to our youth to become leaders and responsible adults," said Lupita Fabregas, director of the University of Missouri Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development.
"Volunteers inducted into the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame have committed years of their lives to make 4-H in the state of Missouri a strong program," Fabregas said. "Our volunteers, like the ones we celebrate in our Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame, have shown us the true meaning of the words devotion, compassion and commitment. Thank you to all of our inductees for your support of Missouri youth. You are contributing to building a better future for the next generation of Missourians."
