DECISION ’23: Johnson files for Accomack School Board re-election

Lisa Johnson

The District 3 representative on the Accomack County School Board has filed for re-election in the Nov. 7 general election. 

Lisa Cropper Johnson, a lifelong Horntown resident, said, “I bring ‘triple E’ to the Board:  extensive experience, education, and energy.”  Johnson said she has learned much during her four-year term. 

She said she looks forward “to continuing to applying her experience, education, and energy to the county where she and both of her children graduated,” all from Chincoteague High School. 

She has one grandchild in Accomack County Public Schools and her son coaches basketball at an Accomack high school. Her daughter is a national certified elementary school teacher. 

“My husband, Tim, and I jointly committed to remaining on Virginia’s Eastern Shore early in our 35-year marriage,” Johnson said of her husband, an Arcadia High School graduate. 

Johnson holds a Ph.D. in organizational leadership from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and has more than three decades of public service experience. 

Her career spans the fields of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility programs; equal opportunity programs; human resources management; and career services.  She has taught at the Eastern Shore Community College and at UMES, both on a part-time basis. 

She represents the School Board by serving on the ESCC Advisory Board, and continues to demonstrate a full commitment to supporting the county’s educational goals and objectives. Her community service includes a wide range of present and past experiences on county boards, such as the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. 

“The breadth and depth of school board responsibilities extend well beyond what most people consider,” Johnson said.

Johnson said her love of the Eastern Shore and its people is continually reflected in her hobby of photography.

“The Eastern Shore is home and I love serving here,” she said.
