Michael J. Johnson, professor and counselor in student services, inspires and encourages all students to look beyond their limitations and make the most of their abilities. “He made me realize there was more to college than doing papers and handing in our work,” said Irvin Williamson, a student government leader. “Professor Johnson has an open mind and an open ear to what the students really need to complete their goals. He wants to see every MCC student graduate.”
