Valleyview teacher inducted into 4H Hall of Fame

Posted on:

Congratulations to Ms. Sherry Howey, Principal at Oscar Adolphson Primary School in Valleyview! Howey was inducted into Alberta's 4-H Hall of Fame this month.

“This year’s 4-H Hall of Fame inductees exemplify the selflessness and dedication of 4-H volunteers, and stand as an example of how generations of Albertans continue to value and contribute to the 4-H program in our province. It is an honour to welcome them into Alberta’s 4-H Hall of Fame.”

Oneil Carlier, Minister, Agriculture and Forestry

The 4-H 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.

Sherry Howey of Valleyview joined 4-H as a youth member and quickly developed skills as a competent and inspiring speaker. As an adult she continues to use these skills as an educator and as a promoter of 4-H, encouraging youth to continue to learn by doing. As a 4-H Leader and volunteer for over 15 years, Sherry has been involved in 4-H at the district, regional and provincial levels. She has held such positions as District Council President and Peace Region Director, and has been a member of numerous committees and event teams including the Communications Committee and Leaders’ Conference Committee. As an exceptional organizer, Sherry has made many outstanding contributions to both 4-H and her community. Her community involvement is extensive through the local swim, gymnastics, dance and figure skating clubs as well as involvement with the Town Council and Youth Steering Committee.
