CTE Dedication Ceremony

It was a great Monday night in the district as we honored the life and legacy of the late Dr. Bill R. Johnson as part of the dedication ceremony for the new state-of-the-art Bill R. Johnson CTE Center. Take a closer look at some of the sights and sounds from the dedication. Watch a video below of the CTE Center's namesake Dr. Bill R. Johnson. 

Bill R. Johnson (1954-2020)
In 1993, Dr. Johnson became the principal of Sycamore Elementary School. After two successful years at Sycamore, he was promoted to principal of Crowley High School. In 2000, while serving as the CHS principal, Dr. Johnson was the recipient of the Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award for his outstanding leadership, dedication and service to children. Dr. Johnson transitioned to CISD Central Administration as executive director of student services in 2005, and later served as an assistant and deputy superintendent before retiring in 2019.
