Charlie Gould of Rosalind has been inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame, following in the footsteps of his father, Stan, who was inducted into the hall in 1977.
Charlie Gould joined 4-H as a beef club member and has been a leader in the Rosalind club for 35 years, running workshops on public speaking, animal health, and grooming on his farm, as well as representing the club on district and regional levels. He is also a volunteer with his community’s fire department, agricultural society and local church.
“Like his father before him, Charlie Gould exemplifies the selflessness and dedication of 4-H volunteers, and stands as an example of how generations of Albertans have been a part of 4-H,” said Verlyn Olson, minister of agriculture and rural development.
There have been 81 members inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame since 1971.
Established in 1917, 4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province with more than 250,000 alumni.
