Hometown Hero: Sanford Johnson
Sanford Johnson from Clarksdale, MS, has served in the education sector for 17 years. An Auburn University alum, when he left Mississippi, he thought he’d never return. However, once he interned with Senator Thad Cochran and learned about the politics of the state, he became unyieldingly pro-Mississippi and wanted to fix what was broken, which led to his involvement in educational policy.
Johnson is the new Executive Director of a teaching policy fellowship called Teach Plus Mississippi. His first test was stepping into his new role on the same day COVID-19 exploded in the state. However, Johnson is no stranger to navigating challenges; he spent 11 years in educational policy and co-founded “Mississippi First,” where he kindled his passion for advocacy, which equipped him with the leadership tools to handle tough situations.
