A bowler since the age of eight, it only makes sense that Durant High School (DHS) Senior Kerrigan Johnson would continue her career in college. On Friday, March 15th, Johnson signed her letter of intent to continue her bowling career and start her nursing career at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids.
According to Mike Henderson, DHS’s bowling coach, Johnson started bowling at the age of eight and has not stopped for the past ten years. In high school, Johnson really came into her own, bowling at the varsity level her junior and senior years. This season, she bowled her first game over 200, and will receive a varsity letter.
Throughout high school, Henderson says he saw Johnson improve markedly, and develop the level headedness, good work ethic, and willingness to learn that she will need to succeed both in college bowling, and in her intended major, nursing. He elaborated, “I think [these skills will] serve her very well. She’s not one to give up on you. I think she’ll do just fine.
As Johnson readies herself to graduate from DHS and start the next chapter of her life at Mount Mercy University, Henderson wishes her well and knows she will succeed at everything she puts her mind to. “I wish her the best and all the success in the world. I hope she gets a career she loves. I know from experience that if you have a career you love, you never have to work.” With so much encouragement and support, Johnson will surely shine for Durant both at the bowling alley and in the classroom.
