2024 Wind Princesses

North Wind Princess

Katy Jo Johnson

Sponsored by: Long's Auto Place

Prince: Eddy Wiegert

A proud Minnesotan, Johnson can be found outside in all seasons, especially on the golf course in the summer. When she can’t be outside, she loves rooting for Minnesota sports teams and crocheting blankets for her friends. Johnson works at Medtronic hosting physician VIP visits and frequently volunteers with their Young Professionals, Women and Christian Networks. Learning about her ancestry and empowering others to tell their stories are two things Johnson is passionate about.

East Wind Princess

Michelle Borris

Sponsored by: Bungalow Inn of Lakeland

Prince: Ron Mikolai

“She loves Titanic, coffee and Jesus, and not in that order.” Boris, a youth and young adult minister at a church, says this description — from a teenager she works with — is accurate. She has led mission trips to Guatemala and recently returned from a pilgrimage to Portugal. Michelle’s passion for youth work has taken her all over, from serving as a long-term volunteer in Scotland and Ireland to a retreat leader in Dubai. She also loves museums so much that she is pursuing a master’s degree in art history at the University of St Thomas. In her free time, this Cathedral Hill resident enjoys volunteering with a golden retriever rescue and a Guatemalan coffee program, cooking, thrifting and planning her dream trip to a dog rescue in Morocco.
