Dr. Johnson is a role model, a mentor, a motivator, a visionary, a man concerned about helping his co-workers, a man concerned about educating and inspiring his fellow man, a man concerned very much about the welfare of our children, and a man concerned about bettering the community. Through it all, he is a man of humility. He is indeed a mover and a shaker. He makes certain that the job is done, but not without having some fun…he has a great sense of humor. He is not short on energy. He is a great speaker and a great talker. And, I am willing to promise you, if he does what he is known to do, he will leave us informed and inspired today.
