Several current or former ISU Extension employees were among those inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Iowa State Fair Aug. 19. Inducted were Chris Gleason, Operation Military Kids coordinator; Ann Lohman, recently retired Clay County education director; Charles (Chuck) Ehm, Union County education director from 1962 to 1965; and Phyllis Olson, an ISU Extension nutritionist for 28 years. Eighty-two counties inducted individuals or couples into the Hall of Fame.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the counties and state to recognize and celebrate 4-H volunteers and staff who have shown outstanding service and dedication to Iowa’s 4-H program,” said Chuck Morris, ISU Extension 4-H Youth Development director.

Many inductees served as club leaders, youth mentors, fair superintendents, fair board members, Extension council members, county youth council members, fair judges, financial supporters or chaperones.
