Hazen, Dubble inducted into Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame

SPRINGFIELD — Christine Hazen of Ford County and Nita Dubble of Iroquois County were among 74 4-H volunteers inducted into the Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame during an Aug. 20 ceremony in the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.

The Illinois 4-H Foundation annually recognizes one 4-H volunteer per county for exemplary service to the Illinois 4-H program as a Hall of Fame winner. This year’s induction class of 74 new members marked the largest inductee class in the Hall of Fame’s 12-year history.

“These long-time volunteers fully embody what 4-H strives to instill in youth,” said Angie Barnard, director of the Illinois 4-H Foundation. “They are caring, dedicated, generous leaders, and the Illinois 4-H Foundation is extremely proud to be able to provide this honor to each and every one of them to thank them for their service to this wonderful organization.”

The Illinois 4-H Foundation established the statewide Hall of Fame in 2004 to honor and celebrate extraordinary 4-H alumni, volunteers and former 4-H staff. Each inductee receives a commemorative Hall of Fame medallion.

“As a result of these volunteers’ years of service and leadership to Illinois 4-H,” Barnard said, “the program they love will continue to create brilliant futures for the young people whose lives it touches.”

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. To learn more, visit www.4hfoundation.illinois.edu.
