“When The Education Foundation formed the ‘P-20’ Council in 2008, Tony stepped up to the plate and volunteered to be a part of it. He recognized the importance and possibilities of making seamless transitions between all levels of education and into the world of work,” said Allen Wutzdorff, executive director of The Education Foundation. “His vision and persistence have helped make the council a significant new presence in our region for tackling the challenge of ensuring that when students leave one level of education, they are prepared for the next level and then for successful entry into a career.“

Johnson was credited with successfully leading two symposiums for middle and high school and two- and four-year colleges and members of the business community and for helping to create the new STEM Center of Excellence at The Citadel.”

“Anyone who can bring together great minds to discuss math on a hot summer day, truly walks the talk when it comes to getting the conversation started where it matters,” Wutzdorff said.

“Not only is he a leader, he is a great collaborator," Wutzdorff said.
