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 Dave Schneider.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasant/Henry County? If not, what brought you here? I’m originally from Ft. Madison and moved to Mt. Pleasant in 1973 when I began working at Motorola as an electronics technician.

What is your favorite part of living here? The small town atmosphere. It’s been a great place to raise a family.

What is your favorite local hangout? During the high school marching band season my favorite hangout is the Mt. Pleasant High School marching band field. I go to all the early morning practices and travel with the band wherever they go. I enjoy helping Mr. DePriest. He’s a great guy to hang out with. And the kids are so fun to be around. They are a great group. I really like helping the music department and Music Boosters.

Is there an annual event in Mt. Pleasant/Henry County that you enjoy? There are actually two — the annual Mt. Pleasant Marching Band Invitational and the Show Choir Invitational “Music in Motion.” I love watching all the creatives hows the bands and show choirs perform. I also volunteer at these events.

What is your favorite spring time activity? Planting a garden.

What’s one dish or drink that reminds you of Mt. Pleasant? Tenderloins.

Tell us something interesting about you? In high school I seriously considered being a music major and becoming a band director. I also thought of a career in journalism, like being a newspaper writer/photographer. But in the early 70s the technical world was a growing industry so that’s what I chose, though now in retirement I pursue my other passions in photography and music.
