William Johnson was a wonderful leader, passionate educator and an inspiration to those who knew him.
Even with the degrees he held, Dr. J was ever the student; not just of horticulture but of human nature. He endeavored to understand the human condition and to build meaningful relationships.
Dr. J sought to cultivate inclusivity in the workplace and in the Master Gardener program he worked tirelessly to build, which is why I believe the Galveston County Extension Office and Master Gardener program flourished under his leadership.
