Grace Platte is one of our Michigan Ag Council Ambassadors. She’s studying agricultural education at Michigan State University, and she works two jobs and she manages social media for the College of Agricultural & Natural Resources, and she works for MSU Extension – Chronic Wasting Disease. Grace didn’t grow up on a farm, but she became interested in her friend’s pigs and became involved in 4-H and FFA, where she was a state officer. She loves advocating for agriculture in her professional and personal life. She also likes golfing, hanging out with her friends, and visiting the Thumb.
