Hall of Fame
The New Mexico 4-H Hall of Fame was established in conjunction with 4-H's National Centennial celebration in 2002. Hall of Fame members were selected for their impact on the lives of 4-H members through their roles as 4-H club or project leaders, fair superintendents, Advisory Board members, 4-H Foundation trustees, and former staff and faculty members of the Cooperative Extension Service. A plaque honoring the inductees is displayed in the lobby of Gerald Thomas Hall at New Mexico State University.
