District 5: Kim JohnsonCommissioner Kim Johnson is a native of St. Lucie County and a graduate from Westwood High School. While in high school, Kim lettered in both football and track along with being named captain of each team. He is also a graduate of Coahoma Community College where he earned his Associate’s Degree in General Studies, and would later go onto graduate from Southeast Missouri State University where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. After graduating from college, Kim became an award-winning teacher, earning the Golden Apple Award in Missouri, and Outstanding Teacher of the year in St. Lucie County.
Upon becoming an effective teacher—Kim decided to take his teaching ability on the road, giving more than 1,000 speeches to more than 1 million teachers and students nationally, winning Barbizon International Speaker of the Year 2004, 2005 and 2006. With his love and passion for his hometown and its people, Kim decided to move back to St. Lucie County and work with youth locally—which prompted him to run for public office because he felt there was a lack of jobs, lack in our use of resources, and a lack of local contracts given to local contractors. Using this platform to bring “REAL CHANGE,” Kim was elected as St. Lucie County Commissioner in District 5 - where he hopes to bring camaraderie to both north and south county collectively for positive future possibilities!
