Last night, we came together to offer a hearty "Happy Trails!" and "Thank You!" to Dr. Steve Johnson, our superintendent for the last three and a half years. Students, Teachers, Principals, Staff and Board Members- past and present- all came out to celebrate.

Dr. J's roots run deep: He began his career in 1972 as a Teacher of Vocational Agriculture.
|Larry Brown and Board of Trustees Vice President Rissie Owens|
As you may already know, "Dr. J" came out of retirement after nearly 40 years as an educator and visionary leader to take the superintendent position at a critical time in Huntsville ISD.

and fellow FFA Advisors David Sheffield & Kenneth Goines.
He initially gave a two year commitment, but stayed on to continue to lead the district.
|Toxie Olyphant, Vanetta Mills and Helen Watkins were among the many folks to come out.|
With his help, we are now poised to continue the good work of educating and serving the children of Huntsville.

|Three generations of the Johnson Family came out to celebrate. |
Here, Dr. J's gets some help from his grandchildren opening up the gift of an iPad.
As Dr. J said, he has about three apps and his grandkids have about 133, so he has plenty of willing tutors!
|Jim Kreier breaks the ice and helps himself to a treat.|
|Former Board Members Riley Tilley and David Standlee|
|Tim Hooks and Beth Burt|
By the way, here's a tip about Dr. J we heard from Interim Superintendent Sonny Cruse: want to know what might be on the retiring superintendent's future schedule? Let's just say Dr. Johnson bought a boat, and christened it, "In a Meeting!"
