Dan Johnson, Vice President of SCS Engineers, recently joined Goodwill Industries of San Diego County (GISD) board of directors.
Following a tradition of giving back to the community established by his father, who lived through the depression and moved to California during the Dust Bowl, Johnson will help the organization by providing experience and knowledge of real estate and environmental issues.
“We are pleased that Dan agreed to sit on our board,” said GISD CEO Mike Rowan. “We look forward to his assistance and expertise.”
GISD was created in 1930 to provide employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. GISD uses the revenue generated from the sale of donated goods at its retail stores and after-market facilities to fund the operation of job training programs and employment services.
“I believe deeply in the organization’s mission, to provide employment and training opportunities to people with disabilities and other barriers to employment,” said Johnson. “It’s important – and very fulfilling – to enable others to succeed.”
In 2015, GISD helped to find employment for more than 4,000 people in San Diego.
