“I believe that the “Professor Johnson Success Image Career Posters” are going to be a wonderful benefit to the children of this county and to the community at large. They give children an idea of themselves being successful later on in life and give them a positive view of themselves. They also provide badly needed positive and diverse role models so that children can aspire to something higher than themselves. I think they will go a long ways to shaping children into the productive and educated citizens that we need for a functioning democracy. I support Bill Hoatson in his to enhance the education of our children.”

“Because of a special ESE teacher named Bill Hoatson at Gadsden Technical Institute, my daughter graduated from the twelfth grade. I feel that without his caring about her and all students she never would have finished school. She was fed up and ready to quit. She was enrolled in two other schools before this one. She could not keep up nor understand the lessons. With Bill Hoatson she advanced ahead. She told me that he explained it so she could understand. Thanks to Bill Hoatson for caring.”
