During the 2011-2012 school year, I had the pleasure to work with Joe Johnson while serving as President of Gators' College Access Network (C.A.N.) at the University of Florida. Mr. Johnson's knowledge, experience, and passion for education served as an invaluable asset to our organization throughout the school year. Additionally, Mr. Johnson served as the keynote speaker for Gators' C.A.N.'s 2012 Educational Access Summit. Through the telling of his own personal experiences in education, Mr. Johnson provided our audience excellent insight and motivation to become advocates for education reform in our community.
