Anita Mappin of Stettler goes to 4-H Hall of Fame

Farming and 4-H have been part of life for Anita Mappin of Stettler for many years and that has now led her to the Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame.

She is one of two Albertans who will be inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame next month to recognize her dedication to the province’s youth and outstanding leadership in their communities.

“I was thrilled and surprised when I received the phone call telling me that I had been nominated and chosen to be inducted in the Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame,” said Mappin, who has been involved with the Stettler 4-H district for more than 20 years and was instrumental to start a 4-H club for Byemoor School this year.

“It is indeed a great honour and quite humbling.”

Mappin will officially be inducted into the Alberta 4-H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the annual Alberta 4-H Leaders Conference in Red Deer on Jan. 15.

Mappin will join an elite group of 73 Alberta men and women inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame since it opened in 1971.
