Congratulations to College of Education alumnus David M. Johnson, EdD, '87, the winner of Seattle University's 2014 Alumni Award for Professional Achievement. Dr. Johnson, a graduate of the College's Educational Leadership doctoral program, is CEO of Navos. One of the state's largest community health centers, Navos offers a full spectrum of mental health services to low-income children and adults with serious and persistent mental illness. Dr. Johnson recently won the 2013 "Visionary Service Award" by the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare and the "Evergreen Award" from Washington Nonprofits for his outstanding innovation and agility in the service of his community.
Dr. Johnson is both a visionary and a pragmatist whose expertise is often used to help develop public and private policy in health care at the local and state level. He firmly believes in the importance of respecting and working with people to recognize and then build upon their strengths.
"My work is my life's mission," he said.

Dr. Johnson considers the EdD he received in Educational Leadership at the College of Education as "the most transformative experience in my life. Without hesitation, I can say that every day I use what I learned in my doctoral program. It made the difference between a good career and a remarkable career."
COE Dean Emeritus John Morford, who was EDLR's senior professor and first chair from 1977 through 1991, remembers David Johnson as a student: "It was always clear that David intended to make major improvements in mental health services in our area," Dr. Morford said. "Congratulations to him on having done so."
