Couple honored at Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame
Making the best better for generations of Missouri 4-Hers, Ronnie and Janet Adams of Stotts City joined the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame, held Aug. 18 at State Fair Community College.
"Ronnie and Janet Adams have provided rock-solid leadership to the 4-H program in Lawrence County for more than 20 years. Their entire family has been committed to the program. Whether the local need be for project leaders, club leaders, or certified shooting sports and sport-fishing leaders, the Adams have volunteered their time and effort for the members of Lawrence County. Their dedication to 4-H continues as their children are now serving as 4-H volunteers," said Karla Deaver, 4-H youth development specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
The Missouri 4-H Foundation recognizes individuals who have created a legacy of service to 4-H by honoring them with membership in the Missouri 4-H Hall of Fame.
"These leaders have made exceptional contributions to the lives of Missouri 4-H members," said Missouri 4-H Foundation Executive Director Cheryl Reams.
Hall of Fame inductees from 43 counties established a legacy totaling 1,625 years of service to 4-H. Family members and friends attended the sixth annual event.
Celebrating more than 60 years of service to 4-H youth, the Missouri 4-H Foundation was established to secure and manage funds for the state Missouri 4-H youth development program.
