Meet the East Grand Rapids Athletic Department Staff:
Athletic Director - Tim Johnston, CAA
This is Mr. Johnston’s 6th year at EGR – before coming to EGR he was a high school principal for 14 years, and an athletic director before that for 5 years. He’s thrilled to be back in athletics, especially at EGR where they offer 37 varsity sports!
He spent much of his early career coaching – football, wrestling and baseball – so if you see him on the sidelines, you’ll understand why, it’s like his second home.
He received his Bachelor’s from Grand Valley State, and his Masters from Michigan State University.
Mr. Johnston is currently the MHSAA tennis committee chair, MHSAA Ski committee chair and MHSAA host of the Boys lacrosse state championship games.
He has been a presenter at the 2013 Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association Confernce, as well as attended the 2012 and 2013 National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Conference.
Tim and wife, Lori, celebrated 31 years of marriage this past August. They have three children, Jenny (Bill), Mike and Ryan.
