4-H Hall Of Fame Honor For Mercer County’s Jim Mayhew

A New Windsor area farmer inducted into the Illinois 4-H Hall of Fame. The honor goes to Jim Mayhew. He influenced many 4-H members over the years with his swine expertise – a good number of whom have gone on to have careers in the swine industry.

Mayhew received the Foundation Hall of Fame Award during a virtual ceremony earlier this month.

The Illinois 4-H Foundation established the statewide Hall of Fame in 2005 to honor and celebrate extraordinary 4-H alumni, volunteers, and former 4-H staff. Those inducted have a track record of exemplary service to 4-H or outstanding career and community achievement and were nominated by either county University of Illinois Extension staff or by the Illinois 4-H Foundation Board.
