S2:E03 | Dr. Pam Johnson

January 28, 2020

Dr. Pam Johnson, Dean of Undergraduate Studies and Senior Professor of Kinesiology and Allied Health, had a different kind of path to Cedarville University. Her first exposure to the school came as she competed against Cedarville athletes as a tennis player for the University of Dayton. She was moved by their compassion and kindness, and one Cedarville athlete, in particular, went out of her way to befriend Dr. Johnson, which led her to put her faith in Jesus Christ as her savior. She came to Cedarville in 1974 after finishing her Ph.D. from Ohio State University. In addition to her teaching responsibilities, she is also associate head coach for women’s tennis.

Johnson was inducted into the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Hall of Fame in 2004 and the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Hall of Fame in 2008. She was inducted into the Cedarville University Athletic Hall of Fame in 1996.

Johnson is also the co-author of a book with her longtime friend, former Cedarville tennis head coach Dee Morris, “Physical Fitness and the Christian: Exercising Stewardship.”
