Your Friend on the Front Page

Oct 13, 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 Kendra Hefner.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? I’m not originally from Henry County, but I have been living here for three years this month.

What is your favorite part of living here? Having come from the St. Louis area, I really appreciate the sense of community that I get here. I can go anywhere and see people I recognize and can carry out a conversation with.

What is your favorite local hangout? As a student, I obviously spend a lot of time on the Iowa Wesleyan campus; otherwise, I love the Coffee Depot. The people there are super nice, and there’s coffee.

What do you like to do in your free time? I tend to do a lot of reading, writing, drawing, and photography. I’ve had friends tell me I am the embodiment of a contemporary Renaissance, I mostly just like to make and experience new things.

Is there an annual event in Mt. Pleasant/Henry County that you enjoy? Between school and work, I really don’t get a lot of time to go to events in the community, but I really want to go to Rock Around the Block next year.

What is your favorite Autumn activity? I may be legally an adult who will be graduating from college in just a few short months, but you will still find me playing in the leaves. I will also watch and re-watch The Nightmare Before Christmas as many times as I can between the beginning of Autumn and Christmas day.

Tell us something interesting about you? I’ve actually been a full-time college student since I was 14 after having been homeschooled my whole life.
