Pacific Beach resident, David (DJ) Johnston, a mathematics teacher at Bishop’s since 1993 and assistant coach of girls’ varsity volleyball and girls’ varsity soccer, was selected by the High School Sports Association (HSSA) as a recipient of the “Service to Sports Award.” He was honored at the 29th Annual Winter Awards Night on Feb. 6 in Marina Village.

It is no surprise that he was singled out for this esteemed honor. One could not overestimate what Johnston has meant to The Bishop’s School during his tenure. Many teams have benefited from his expertise and wisdom, including cross-country and track. And his influence doesn’t stop there. A former practicing attorney, he left behind civil law to practice in a higher authority, the laws of mathematics! Add a beloved instructor, valued colleague and generous distributor of Hershey’s Candy Kisses to his list of accolades.

The HSSA of San Diego promotes high standards of proficiency and ethics in the field of high school athletics. One of its goals is to foster strong and professional relationships with post-secondary school coaches, athletic directors, and administrators. HSSA extends professional services to the coaching field, recognizes high school athletes through various events and promotes goodwill and fellowship among all the members of the athletics community in San Diego County.

The awards ceremony honored administrators, community members, business persons and coaches from across San Diego County who have made outstanding contributions to student-athletes during their careers.
