Don Greytak of Havre and Bev Wallace of Bozeman have been named to the Montana 4-H Foundation's Hall of Fame.

"Both Don and Bev have helped 4-H enormously for many years," said Sandra Germann, executive director of the foundation. "Each one of them has helped create many opportunities for Montana 4-H youth."

Don Greytak, an artist, has donated his drawings to be used in an annual 4-H calendar each year since 1992. The calendars are then sold by 4-H to generate income supporting 4-H projects and opportunities throughout Montana.

"Don is always willing to assist 4-H . . . whether it be donating a print for a fund-raiser or visiting with a 4-Her interested in drawing," wrote Joe and Alma Seidel as they nominated Greytak. In addition, Greytak is active in his community through his church and senior citizen activities..

Wallace was a Montana State University Extension agent in Gallatin and grew up in Rosebud and Treasure counties. As an agent, she helped 4-H youth as part of her job, but she took that help "above and beyond" the professional level.

"I have had the opportunity to work with Bev on many different levels," wrote Karin Ludeman, a volunteer 4-H Leader in Gallatin County. "She always went the extra mile for kids and adults."

"Bev has always been there for all of my ventures in life," wrote Stan Klaumann in nominating Wallace. "She is there for me as a mentor and guide."

Both inductees will be honored at the Montana 4-H Foundation banquet Sept. 27 in Great Falls at the Holiday Inn.
