Your Friend on the Front Page

Jun 16, 2017

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 Kristy Johnson.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? No, my husband finished college at Iowa Wesleyan University and it was such a nice community, we decided to settle here.

What is your favorite part of living here? Being close to all of our family in Keokuk and Cedar Rapids. Also, I work at Iowa Wesleyan and my husband works at Shottenkirk, both organizations give back to our community in a big way. I love that.

What do you like to do in your free time? Watch our kids on the field, court or track. I also enjoy long lazy nights and weekends we spend with our kids.

Is there an annual event in Mt. Pleasant/Henry County that you enjoy? Old Threshers. It’s so neat to see all the traffic it brings and the food, crafts and concerts.

Is there something Mt. Pleasant doesn’t have that you’d like to see? Starbucks.

What is your favorite summertime activity? Watching our three kids play softball and baseball.

What do you think is Mt. Pleasant/Henry County’s trademark? Old Threshers. You can go about anywhere and someone will know exactly where you’re from.

Tell us something interesting about you? I was a cheerleader in high school. My kids are into sports, so when they talk to me about their sports or games, they usually end up laughing at me because I’m not the most knowledgable about sports.
