Dr. Lyman T. Johnson
We honor Dr. Lyman T. Johnson who is the namesake of our great school, born on June 12, 1906. Dr. Johnson was a civil right leader and an outstanding educator. Dr. Johnson taught at Louisville Central High School for thirty-three years and served nearly ten years as assistant principal and school board member in the Jefferson County Public School system. He successfully challenged the University of Kentucky and was the first African American to attend there. Now, the University of Kentucky has a residence hall, an alumni association, and a scholarship in Dr. Johnson’s name. In addition, Dr. Johnson was awarded the Governor’s Distinguished Service Medallion for Volunteerism and the City of Louisville’s first Freedom Award. Our Johnson students exemplify Dr. Johnson’s legacy every day!
