SACRAMENTO (AP) — Actress Betty White, former Secretary of State George Shultz, painter Wayne Thiebaud and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg are the latest to join California’s Hall of Fame.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and first lady Maria Shriver will induct 14 notable people who’ve made a mark on the Golden State Tuesday night in Sacramento.

Gov.-elect Jerry Brown will attend the ceremony as his late father, former Gov. Edmund G. “Pat” Brown is inducted.

Director James Cameron, country crooner Merle Haggard, writer Anne Lamott, tennis star Serena Williams and venture capitalist John Doerr also plan to be on hand for their induction.

An exhibit featuring mementoes of their careers opens Wednesday. It includes a life-size Terminator statue from Cameron’s blockbuster movie starring Schwarzenegger.

California’s Hall of Fame was established in 2006 by First Lady Maria Shriver to honor Californians who embody the state’s innovative spirit and have made their mark on history. The Hall of Fame is house in the California Museum in Sacramento.

    I wish I knew how to contact Betty White to ask her how she stays so young.
    To see if she takes anything special or does anything special….
    She’s so pretty and never seems to age.
    Any idea how to contact her?
