My name is Grace Clark, I am so excited to announce my position to serve as your new DeWitt County Farm Bureau Manager, effective September 1.
I grew up on a grain farm here in DeWitt County outside of Kenney, Ill. It is here where my passion for agriculture took root and has played an active role in my whole life. During my time in school, I remained active in clubs and organizations both academically and locally. I grew up spending my time in the show barn, traveling all over the state and nationally to show Shorthorn cattle competitively. Although my time in the show ring is beginning to dwindle away, I still am very active in the growth of our cattle operation.
I graduated this May from Illinois State University with a double major in Agri-Business and Agriculture Communication and Leadership. I am honored to not only have gained the opportunity to begin my career in an amazing company, but in the best industry serving the people that I am the most passionate about. I have had the privilege to train in various counties in Illinois and thrilled to land in my home county.
I am excited to be able to come back home to advocate for my community as well as the people and organizations that raised me to be the person that I am today. I look forward to work with you all in the future and am excited to be a part of DeWitt County’s continued growth and success.
Please feel free to come visit me at our office at 1060 IL- 54 in Clinton. I would love to see some familiar faces! If you would like to reach me via email, please do not hesitate to use [email protected]
