I am truly going to miss each and every one of you and I have appreciated your kindness throughout the years, Mrs. Johnson told the crowd. Dr. Greiner praised Mrs. Johnson for the thousands of students she has served. We thank you for your dedication and service to our students.

Doug Fraley, Vice President of Student Services, noted, Judy Johnson has facilitated the dreams of students and community members to improve their personal lives and to secure skills that have ensured the attainment of their careers that contribute both personally and to our region. HCTC is proud of her accomplishments.

Mrs. Johnson has worn many hats while at the College. She served as Coordinator of Testing from 2008 to 2013, Coordinator of Continuing Education from 2003 to 2008, Coordinator of the Life Skills Program from 1996 to 2003, Career Awareness Coordinator from 1992 to 1996, and Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program (EKCEP) Older Worker s Coordinator from 1990 to 1992. She also served as an adjunct teacher of communication classes.

Throughout my tenure, I would get feedback from students who went on, and then came back, because the college is such a friendly place. That is something that we all can be proud of; it was very gratifying to be part of HCTC, Mrs. Johnson said.
