“I am delighted that Mike Johnston will address our graduates and their families at Convocation this year. As a teacher, principal, and entrepreneur, Mike’s leadership has made a real difference in the lives of countless students,” said Ryan. “As a legislator in the Colorado State Senate, he is a nationally recognized advocate for school finance reform, fair teacher evaluations, and education equity. I believe that our community will be inspired, as I have been, by his passion and his willingness to find solutions to notoriously difficult challenges in education.”
Johnston has been called a “game changer” in education, has made Time’s top 40 under 40 list, and has been touted by Forbes as one of the seven most influential educators.
