Florida 4-H Hall of Fame
The Florida 4-H Hall of Fame was established in 2002 to recognize outstanding individual contributors to the 4-H program. Established during the national 4-H program’s centennial year, one hundred members were inducted into the Florida 4-H Hall of Fame. An additional four to five members are inducted each year. Inductees include outstanding 4-H alumni, volunteers, emeritus extension agents and professionals, program leaders, and supporters.
In 2020 Florida 4-H welcomed five new members to the Hall of Fame: Dr. Susan MacManus, Kim Massagee, Vicki Meriwether, Hal Porter and Don Sellers. Click here to read more about the 2020 honorees. Inductees were celebrated during National 4-H Week with a live virtual Hall of Fame induction. View the full program recording here.
