Meet the East Grand Rapids Athletic Department Staff:
Athletic Director - Tim Johnston, CAA
This is Mr. Johnston’s 7th 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 34 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 currently serves on the MHSAA girls lacrosse committee and is a member of the MHSAA Board of Canvassers. He previously served on the tennis and ski committees . Mr. Johnston has hosted a number of MHSAA district, regional and state tournaments for the MHSAA, including boys lacrosse and ski.
Tim and wife, Lori, celebrated 32 years of marriage this past August. They have three children; Jen (Bill & Kaylee), Mike and Ryan.
