Howey joined 4-H as a youth member and has been a 4-H leader and volunteer for more than 15 years at the district, regional and provincial levels. She has held such positions as district council president and Peace Region director.
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 leadership qualities, community references and contributions to 4-H, agriculture and their local communities.
Set to celebrate its centennial in 2017, 4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province with more than 250,000 alumni.
