Together, the 37 members of the Hall of Fame's Class of 2010 have been involved with 4-H as members and 4-H club leaders for more than 869 years.

"These individuals have done so much for our Illinois 4-H Youth Development program," said Angie Barnard, director of the Illinois 4-H Foundation. "Their endless devotion to the 4-H youth and this program is invaluable. We are pleased to be able to pay tribute to their legacy for future generations to learn from."

The Illinois 4-H Foundation established the statewide Hall of Fame in 2005 to honor and celebrate extraordinary 4-H alumni, volunteers and former 4-H staff. Nominations for the Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame are made by University of Illinois Extension staff.

The Illinois 4-H Foundation raises private funds that are invested in Illinois 4-H programs that provide meaningful, positive development experiences for Illinois youth to develop leadership, citizenship and life skills.
