Three outstanding Albertans are being recognized for their longtime service to 4-H and their communities.
Mark and Pat Sayers, and Nora Paulovich are the 2018 inductees into Alberta’s 4-H Hall of Fame.
“The 4-H program would not be possible without the selfless dedication of a group of very passionate volunteers, and this year’s inductees stand as a testament to that. These leaders exemplify how generations of Albertans continue to value and enhance the 4-H program in our province. It is an honour to welcome them into Alberta’s 4?H Hall of Fame.”
~Oneil Carlier, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
The 4-H Hall of Fame recognizes exceptional 4-H leaders for their exemplary service, mentorship and volunteerism in their communities. Candidates are nominated by their 4-H peers and are evaluated based on their demonstrated leadership qualities, community references and contributions to 4-H, agriculture and their local communities.
4-H Alberta is recognized as the premier youth leadership organization in Alberta. Working together in a vibrant, thriving environment, 4-H Alberta leaders connect people, ideas and communities for a lifetime of benefit. 4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province, with more than 250,000 alumni.
Mark and Pat Sayers, from Lethbridge County, have been dedicated 4-H leaders and volunteers on countless clubs, councils and committees for 25 years. No matter the task or responsibility, Pat and Mark have had a significant impact on the many people whose paths they crossed during their time with 4-H.

She is an excellent organizer, 4-H mentor, and able to assist other clubs and leaders when dealing with challenging situations. She has made positive impacts to the 4-H program both in the Peace region and across the province.
