A Video Message from Dr. Johnson
In honor of Superintendent Dr. Gene Johnson’s 27 years of service to Shawnee Mission, and upcoming June 30, 2013 retirement, the Shawnee Mission Board of Education and the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation announce the Johnson Fund.
Your investment in the Johnson Fund bridges the gap for lower income students by providing all-day kindergarten scholarships and aid with school related expenses for students K-12.
“Our students come to us from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds with varied life experiences. It is very important to me for every student to have the resources needed to compete on a level playing field,” says Dr. Johnson.
Make a difference where it matters.
