New Clark County Farm Bureau Ag Literacy Coordinator
Hello everyone! My name is Megan Grissom and I am the new Agriculture Awareness Coordinator for Clark County Farm Bureau. I have grown up around agriculture and I believe that it is very important to educate our youth on agriculture. I am a recent graduate from Lake Land College, where I majored in Business Management and Marketing. I am a Cumberland County 4-H completion member and my family owns and operates Grissom’s Lost Creek Orchard in Greenup.
I am excited for the opportunity to get into classrooms and I look forward to organizing agriculture events throughout Clark County!
Clark and Jasper County Win New Award for the Ice Cream Trailer
The New Horizon Award recognizes new and innovating programs which follow the priorities set by the Illinois Farm Bureau Board of Directors. County projects were completed in the past two years and were judged based on innovation and results.
“Brand new this year, this award seeks out and honors counties going above and beyond to engage members, address environmental issues, have conversations with consumers, and more,” said Jackie Jones, associate field support director, IFB. “The counties recognized represent the best of the best in their membership groups, or multi-county coalitions.”
County projects honored exemplified IFB priorities, including valuing and engaging members and county Farm Bureaus; prioritizing profitability and financial viability; leading efforts on environmental issues; reaching out to influencers; and effectively managing resources.
IFB President Richard Guebert presents the New Horizon Award To Clark County President Brad Daugherty and Jasper County President Mike Evans.
