Bill Johnson

Johnson’s 20 years of sharing his tremendous talents and dedication to the club’s youth and sailing program was evident in the personal testimonies of so many, including past instructors, Beatrice Bronner, Justin Guthrie, Matt Guthrie and current head instructor, Graham Shivers, reported Megan Stephens.

“Hearing what he’s meant to both the students he has taught and the counselors he has mentored, the club could not have been more proud to have had Mr. Johnson’s talents and inspiration on their team,” said Stephens. What he brought to the program is instilled in countless individuals for the rest of their lives. The club thanks Bill Johnson for the many years of service to this program and for making it what it is today.”

A memorabilia book was published and presented to Johnson, along with a copy available for viewing in the clubhouse.

With the start of a new era of sailing, the club is confident that Premier Sailing will carry on what Johnson has worked so hard to build, said Stephens.

The club also thanks members Jim and Vicki Harding for their time and efforts on putting together the scrapbook, she added.
