Patricia Redd Johnson

Former Associate Head of Admissions & Head of Multicultural Affairs, The Hotchkiss School

It is an honor to be the namesake of the Patricia Redd Johnson Scholarship which was created by a gift from Swanston Philanthropy to support multicultural students receiving financial assistance from The Hotchkiss School. André and Michelle’s passion for social impact and innovation mirrors my own beliefs in the transformative power of education and together, we aim to make a positive and lasting effect on individuals’ lives and by extension, entire communities.
