Special to The Chronicle from The Johnson Journal
The Johnson County Board of Education announced last week that John Buxton will serve as assistant principal for Johnson County Middle/High School for the 2021-2022 school year.
Born and raised in Johnson County, Buxton has taught in Johnson County for seven years. He currently serves as a high school social studies teacher, FCA advisor, and varsity archery coach.
Buxton holds a master’s in educational leadership from Columbus State University and a Bachelor of Science in Education from Georgia Southern University.
He says he is beyond grateful for the opportunity to serve as the new assistant principal.
“It is my belief that all children are created with a purpose and are the most precious commodity we have,” said Buxton. “I love this school and community and will work alongside the incredible middle/high school family to help our children reach their potential. I look forward to working with our students, parents, and community to achieve this goal and am proud to be a Johnson County Trojan!”
Buxton is a member of Kite Church of God. He is the son of Randy and Mary Jo Buxton. His wife is Haley Screws Buxton, and she is employed at Johnson County Elementary School. The couple, both alumni of Swainsboro High, lives in Kite with their 2-year-old daughter, Madison Grace.
