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 Katherine Evans, whom you may know from Iowa Wesleyan University.

Are you originally from Mt. Pleasanty? If not, what brought you here? I?m originally from Pawhuska, Okla. My husband was recruited as a professor in sport management at Iowa Wesleyan University, which, then led to my job.

What is your favorite part of living here? My favorite part of living here is the people and the small town feel. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly to our family from the moment we arrived.

What is your favorite local hangout? My favorite local hangout would be the Main Street Mt. Pleasant events; we always have such a great time.

What do you like to do in your free time? I enjoy teaching group fitness classes at the Rec Center. The people there and the fitness environment is so positive in this town. Also, keeping up with a toddler keeps us on our toes

What is your favorite summertime activity? This will be our first summer here, so I?m excited to see more of Iowa. We really had a great time at the Mt. Pleasant aquatic center; I?m sure we?ll be there quite a bit this summer.

What?s one dish or drink that reminds you of Mt. Pleasant?  I had never heard of chicken lips before moving here, so I?m curious to try them.

Tell us something interesting about you? I?m a small town rancher?s daughter that grew up learning about the importance of investing in your community and we enjoy the hospitality here! I value my relationship with Christ, love spending time with my family, being involved with PEO and my national sorority, Zeta Tau Alph.
