Buckley Johnson ('59)

Buckley Johnson (’59) taught elementary school in Connecticut for 36 years. Buck received several awards and honors for his work, including Teacher of the Year, two state Presidential Awards for teaching math, two Department of Education “Celebration of Excellence” Awards, and the prestigious Milken Family Foundation National Educator Award. Buck says his greatest reward was watching growth in students when they understood new concepts. Buck believes “people learn best when they do things, not just listen and take notes.” He knows that Westminster provides that experience to students, and that’s why he recently created an annual scholarship for students majoring in education. Now retired, Buck is living in New Mexico
