Dr. Gary Weedman, president of Johnson University, has announced he will be retiring, effective June 30, 2018.
During Weedman’s tenure as president, Johnson University experienced tremendous growth in enrollment, academic programs, and facilities. Next year will mark his 11th year as president, 18th year at Johnson, 50th year in Christian higher education, and his 75th birthday.
“The words ‘thank you’ hardly seem adequate for the 11 years Gary and Janis have faithfully served Johnson University, nor do the words ‘you’ve done a great job’ convey sufficiently the praise they are due,” wrote L.D. Campbell, chairman of Johnson’s board of trustees. “It is no small challenge to find a successor of Dr. Weedman’s caliber.”
The presidential search process has begun.
Weedman began his tenure as president on July 1, 2007. Prior to that, he served as senior vice president of TCM International Institute in Heiligenkreuz, Austria; provost at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL; and vice president for academic affairs and dean at Milligan College in Tennessee. He is a 1964 graduate of Johnson. His wife, Janis, is also an alum.
