Thirteen 4-H leaders and supporters were inducted into the New Mexico 4-H Hall of Fame on Dec. 15 at New Mexico State University. The induction ceremony included individual recognition for the inductees, an unveiling of new nameplates on the hall of fame plaque and a reception.
The hall of fame, established in 2002, honors 4-H members, volunteer leaders, fair superintendents, advisory board members, 4-H Foundation trustees, and former faculty with NMSU's Cooperative Extension Service, which administers 4-H statewide.
"These individuals have given cumulatively more than 328 years of service to the New Mexico 4-H Program," said Frank Hodnett, department head of NMSU Cooperative Extension Service's 4-H Youth Development Program. "Including this group, we have inducted 154 individuals and couples into the hall of fame."
This year's inductees are Larry Hobson of Chaves County; Joe B. Armstrong of Dona Ana County; Bobby and Vickie Cox and Suzanne Norton Jones of Lea County; Raymond and Gigi Parker, Ervin "Pete" Walls, and the late Jerry Franklin, of Quay County; Glenda Parrish Anthony of Roosevelt County; Jan Tomko of San Juan County; Brenda Montoya of Sandoval County; and Virginia Barsuaskas of Santa Fe County.
