Accolades to teacher Steve Johnson

As memorable as it was for 41 Phoenix Union students who attended the 2018 DECA International Career Development Conference in Atlanta last month, it was a rush of memories for Steve Johnson, the DECA advisor from Maryvale who was recognized with a "Years of Service to DECA" award for 40 years, during the closing awards session.  He is retiring this year.

Johnson, a Minnesota native, began his teaching career in 1976 and for the last 25 years he has been at Maryvale, where he has taught Marketing Education, supervised on-the-job training (Cooperative Ed), General Business, Keyboarding, Typing, Consumer Math, and CTE 1 to freshman. 

He has also coached football, freshmen and JV basketball, softball, cross country and track.    Johnson has also coordinated the Maryvale Student of the Month program the last 20 years.
