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.
