2020 Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees Announced
CALGARY, AB – 4-H Alberta is pleased to announce that Andy Pittman and Stacy Price will be inducted into the 2020 Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame.
The Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame honours Albertans who have made exceptional contributions to the 4-H program in this province as a volunteer through outstanding leadership and have significantly impacted 4-H youth and our leaders. Both individuals have been selected to join other Albertans who have been honoured since the Hall of Fame was initiated in 1971 by Premier Lougheed.
Andy Pittman has been involved at all levels of 4-H from club leader to president, 4-H Provincial Council to today, serving as a director on the Interim 4-H Alberta Board. More importantly, Andy was a member of a group of individuals tasked with moving 4-H Alberta forward, meeting with club leaders and members across the province, explaining the important proposed future of 4-H Alberta. Andy was also the founding chair of the 4-H Alberta Sheep Show. Andy puts the members’ interests first, and 4-H Alberta is successful today because of Andy’s many contributions.
Stacy Price has positively influenced Alberta’s 4-H program and has been involved at every level of 4-H. Stacy is a dedicated volunteer who has served in many capacities from club leader to serving on the executive on the Calgary Stampede 4-H Parade Committee for 23 years, to District Executive and president of the 4-H Alberta Provincial Council. She was instrumental in creating and implementing the provincial 4-H Sheep show and serving on the committee. Stacy is a very dedicated volunteer and always goes the extra mile, making her an excellent inductee into the 2020 Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame.
“The Interim Board of Directors, 4-H Alberta are pleased to acknowledge these candidates and their contributions,” said Lyanne Almberg, chair. “Their long-time commitment to our organization, continued passion to progressively move the organization forward, and dedication to the 4-H community makes them the perfect inductees into the Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame.”
Inductees demonstrate outstanding leadership in promoting the 4-H motto of “Learn to Do by Doing” and live the 4-H pledge of service and commitment to club, community, and country through all organization levels.
