Kyle Smith, retired Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service executive associate director, has been selected a National 4-H Hall of Fame Class of 2017 Laureate and hall of fame inductee.
Smith’s induction will take place during a special ceremony Oct. 6 at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland. He is one of 16 Class of 2017 laureates being honored for “excellence in citizenship, leadership, character and career accomplishments,” and “significant contribution to 4-H, the nation’s premier youth development organization,” according to the National 4-H Hall of Fame.
The National 4-H Hall of Fame was created in 2002 as a 4-H Centennial project to recognize and celebrate those who have made a significant impact on 4-H and its millions of members during the more than 100 years of that organization’s existence.
