Johnson of Buffalo has been elected president of the New York State School
Boards Association (NYSSBA). Her one-year term begins Jan. 1, 2010. 



The election

City. A total of 276 voting delegates participated in the business meeting,
which was held in conjunction with the Association’s 90th Annual Convention
attended by nearly 3,000 members of the education community.

“We as school
board members must lead the way by action, word and deed,” said Johnson, who
chose “empowerment – through education for opportunity and success” as her
presidential theme.

Johnson

of Directors. She served six terms as vice president of NYSSBA and was first
appointed to the board in 2000. Johnson is a former president of the Buffalo
