Paul Johnson

What’s In the Box? Growing our Community


Public Servant

Paul was raised in Tulsa, OK where he started doing theater when he was four years old. He was a National Merit Scholar and started college as a math major, but Honors Calc III took care of that. Paul met his wife, Rebecca, at summer camp and graduated from Oklahoma State University. He bounced around stocking groceries at Walmart, mowing lawns, consulting, and selling before he found his passion—teaching.

Paul is a bit of a public speaking wonk and has presented more than 500 talks covering more than 75 topics. He is a BCMA and Municipal Specialist and serves on the board of directors of ISA. He has been a radio talk show host, newspaper columnist, Extension educator, and University adjunct instructor. Paul believes in saving money by investing in our community.
