Eunice Hagler

Dale County 4-H Alumna and Donor

Inducted May 14, 2009

One hundred years ago, the first 4-H clubs appeared in Dale County. Carey Hagler’s name was on the earliest 4-H Corn Club roster in Dale County. One hundred years later, another Hagler name is strongly associated with 4-H – Carey Hagler’s daughter-in-law, Eunice Hagler. Over the past 60 years, Hagler has been an important part of the Dale County 4-H program.

At the age of 9, she became an active 4-H member later earning her way to the State 4-H Fashion Revue competition as a senior 4-H member. Years later she became a 4-H parent who helped her daughter achieve recognition as a national 4-H winner and her son become a 4-H scholarship winner and national 4-H participant. Hagler has been a 4-H member, parent, volunteer, competition judge, and supporter.

She continues to support the Dale County 4-H program through her role as Dale County Probate Judge and County Commission chairman. For the past 10 years, Probate Judge Hagler has demonstrated her desire for the continuation of the Dale County 4-H program by securing funding and other resources as needed.

Judge Hagler believes that 4-H is an important youth program even after 100 years. She truly believes that 4-H continues “To Make the Best Better.”
