Your Friend on the Front Page
Every week, the Mt. Pleasant News will feature a Henry County resident in a profile snapshot. The questions will appear in bold.
This week’s ‘Friend on the Front Page’ is Shelly Masterson, whom you may know from 5 Star.
Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? No, my family moved to Danville when I was in sixth-grade. My dad relocated us for a teaching/coaching opportunity.

What is your favorite local hangout? My husband and I love to go to Mi Pueblo Real for dinner.

Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn’t have that you’d like to see? I would love to see a mini golf course. I remember playing when I was in high school. I think it would be fun for the kids here.

What do you think is Mt. Pleasant/Henry County’s trademark? Old Threshers.
