staff who have a track record of extraordinary career achievement or
exemplary service to 4-H.
"This is our ninth class of
inductees since recognition began in 2004," said Angie Barnard,
director of the Illinois 4-H Foundation. "Itís also our largest
class, and we commend them for their commitment to the Illinois 4-H
Youth Development Program.
"These longtime volunteers fully
embody what 4-H strives to instill in youth," Barnard continued.
"They are caring, dedicated, generous leaders. The Illinois 4-H
Foundation is extremely proud to be able to provide this honor to
each and every one of them, and we thank them for their service to
this wonderful organization."
