Hello, I’m TC Johnson the Youth Services Center’s coordinator. I have been the coordinator at Winburn Middle for the past eighteen years but have been an employee for Fayette County Public Schools since 1997.
I’m a native Lexingtonian. I grew up on a farm in rural Fayette County and was educated in the Public-School system. The necessity of education and academic success was my parents’ mantra, I would be the first member of my family to graduate from high school. My educational journey includes an Associate Degree of Applied Science in Business Management from Bluegrass Community & Technical College. I earned a bachelor’s degree of Science in Family Studies with an emphasis in Individual and Family Development from the University of Kentucky.
In the next level of my educational journey, I plan to pursue a Masters’ of Science in Community & Leadership Development which would give me another tool and opportunity to serve. The goal of my mission is to . . . quench the thirst I have for exploring other avenues, beyond my current achievements; granted the opportunity that I may climb to the ultimate heights of my abilities . . . which are unlimited!
I proclaim that I walk in the calling of my purpose in life to serve, aid and love others. I am passionate in my work however intentional on helping our youth be the best they can be in life!
One of my most gratifying event at Winburn was winning the Fayette County District Middle School Football Championship while serving as Assistant Football Coach. Several of those players went on to college and professional football. However, there have been many accomplishments and educational successes through the Youth Services Center. We are blessed to have school staff, district, parents, volunteers, clergy, college students, community partners and alumnus that works collectively together to eliminate the barriers that challenges our youth.
I would to extend my sincere appreciation to everyone who has served Winburn Middle School, no matter how small the deed, it is great in heart. It makes the difference!
I am thankful, but our work isn’t done yet!
