Newman, who joined 4-H as a youth development specialist in 1979, was honored for his leadership in many project areas including equine, beef, sheep, swine and animal quality assurance. He also was responsible for designing statewide and national curriculum and was instrumental in 4-H contests such as Horse Bowl, Hippology, Horse Judging and Forestry Stewardship.
Three other Washington residents were added to the hall at the 2010 4-H Forum in Spokane:
• Lawana Harting, from Columbia County, has been a 4-H leader for 28 years and leads projects in sewing, food and nutrition, entomology, beef and leather craft.
• Donna Hanger, from Columbia County, partnered with Harting to lead projects on food preservation, health and swine. Together they also coordinate the Columbia County 4-H Dress Review, Foods for All Occasions and baking contests.
• Bruce Bradley, from Kitsap County, has served as a rabbit club leader, State 4-H Fair Rabbit Superintendent and on the Washington State 4-H Fair Board.
More than 30 WSU Extension 4-H county volunteers also were recognized at the forum for providing outstanding commitments to youth.
