Toastmasters Need to “RESET”

by Lock Lyon

Dr. Fred L. Johnson III is an award-winning public speaker. He delivers inspirational and educational talks to audiences of all backgrounds and sizes. His topics focus on military history, leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion. As he notes on his website, “Across functional fields, one thing is certain: success is determined by leadership.” He became a Toastmaster, and advanced to the semifinals of the  Toastmasters World Series of Public Speaking eight times. In both 2017 and 2018 he took second place.

Awards and Honors

While teaching at hope College in Michigan, Dr. Fred L. Johnson III earned various awards, including Ruth and John Reed Faculty Achievement Award (2013). In November 2019, the Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) awarded Dr. Johnson with the Medal of Honor. This is the most prestigious award that the DAR presents.

The Hope College campus news noted that the DAR Medal of Honor “is given to an adult man or woman who is a United States citizen by birth and has shown extraordinary qualities of leadership, trustworthiness, service, and patriotism. The recipient must have made unusual and lasting contributions to our American Heritage by giving of himself or herself to his or her community, state, country, and fellowman.”
