Going to the State Bill Riley Talent Search

Written by Theresa Rose on July 18, 2016

8 year old Kaelyn Townsley of Morning Sun tapped her way to a spot in the Bill Riley Talent Search at the Iowa State Fair.  Kaelyn won the Sprout division of the qualifying contest held at the Henry County Fair with her tap routine to “Snoopy Medley”.  A lyrical trio from Mt. Pleasant was second in the Seniors division at the Henry County Fair.  Since the first place finisher, Lydia Fisher of Wapello, had already qualified that meant Allison Buckert, Katie Ensminger and Qian Quian Yeu will go to the State Fair contest.  The three teens attend Mt. Pleasant High School and performed to the music, “In My Arms.”
