Carol Johnson-Dean

Dr. Carol Johnson-Dean is interim president of LeMoyne-Owen College. Prior to that, she served as executive director of New Leaders for New Schools Memphis and superintendent of Memphis City Schools.

James S. Gilliland and Peter Formanek "changed the life trajectory for many of our students who are often first generation college-goers, and who would, otherwise, have little to no opportunity to contribute meaningfully in our society."
