Johnson County has lost a wonderful community worker and friend, Terry Warden. Over the years, Terry touched so many people, and helped to change the lives of so many in our community. She will be sorely missed. Terry was a graduate of Johnson County High School Class of 1964 and was active in putting together her 50-year class reunion. For over 28 years Terry served on the Johnson County Chamber Board of Directors, serving as past president, vice president, and part-time Chamber coordinator. Terry created and chaired many events over the years, including acting as the county’s first Chamber-sponsored Johnson County Leadership Program Director, chairing the Independence Day celebration at the park, Apples for Teachers, Fourth of July parade, shop local promotions, and the recent shop-at-home incentive program benefiting local Chamber of Commerce member businesses. For over 15 years Terry helped Johnson County adults realize their dream of attaining their high school diploma by acting as a recruiter, public relations specialist, and official testing monitor for the Johnson County Adult Education Program. After retiring from her position in adult education, Terry went on to touch the lives of Johnson County’s young people, acting as an early director of the Johnson County Community Center. Terry Warden was a true community worker and advocate for our citizens and she had a rare spirit of volunteerism. The Johnson County Chamber of Commerce joins with the rest of our community to salute and honor a true hometown hero who meant so much to so many.
