The Duerksens—A couple on the move

Since moving to Highland Springs, Gerald and Mary Jo Duerksen are constantly on the go. The Kansas natives have always enjoyed active lifestyles, but the Highland Springs campus makes it easy for them to participate in a wide variety of activities.

"We have a lot of fun times here at Highland Springs," says Mary Jo. "There's always something going on." Mary Jo participates in six exercise classes a week on campus—sometimes two in one day. From Zumba to chair yoga, Mary Jo can easily find an activity that interests her.

Gerald enjoys spending time outside exploring the beautiful Highland Springs campus. "Whether he's walking or riding his bike, he's out there at least once a day," says Mary Jo. Gerald likes to get fresh air and loves meeting up with the other outdoorsmen of Highland Springs. "I've made a lot of good friends at Highland Springs," he says. "It's a great place to meet new people."
