EDMONTON -  A couple from Lethbridge County, along with another from Manning, are the three Albertans to be inducted in to Alberta's 4-H Hall of Fame for 2018.
 
4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province, with more than 250,000 alumni. It's recognized as the premier youth leadership organization in the province, in which 4-H Alberta leaders connect people, ideas and communities for a lifetime of benefit.
 
The organization's 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.
 
The 2018 inductees are Mark and Pat Sayers, and Nora Paulovich.

The 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.

Nora Paulovich, from Manning, has been a tireless 4-H leader and volunteer for more than 20 years. Nora combines her passion for the positive development of members with the 4-H motto of Learn to Do by Doing. 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.

Alberta Agriculture Minister Oneil Carlier, noted 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.”
