Student Spotlight: Micah Johnson

Micah JohnsonAs a native of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, UT senior Micah Johnson was very familiar with the university when she arrived as a freshman. However, rather than settle into the campus she grew up visiting, Johnson wanted to make an impact on her fellow students and the university community. From her performance in the classroom to her work within the College of Business Administration and across campus, it is clear that she certainly reached—and exceeded—her goal.

A marketing major whose collateral is in international business, Johnson has maintained a 3.34 grade point average despite her busy schedule. Her accomplishments have been recognized by her invitations to Phi Sigma Theta, Sigma Alpha Lambda, and multiple semesters on the Dean’s List. Additionally, she holds three scholarships from the college and one from her sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi. Johnson serves the College of Business Administration as a BA 100 Peer Mentor, helping incoming freshmen who are interested in majoring in business learn about the college and programs it offers. Similarly, her service as a Venture Living Learning Community Peer Mentor allows her to welcome incoming freshmen and introduce them to the leadership and service expected of business students by the college.

Johnson has shown her leadership in other aspects of campus life as well. As a member of the university’s Greek community, she has served Alpha Omicron Pi sorority as the chapter’s Junior Panhellenic Council delegate (and within the council as the activities chair), vice president of academic development, president, and currently, vice president of administration for AOPi and vice president of chapter relations and judicial affairs for the Panhellenic Council. During this time, she has received honors for her leadership and involvement within the sorority chapter. Johnson also has served the campus as a member of Student Alumni Associates, and various philanthropic organizations through volunteerism.

Somewhere in the middle of her schoolwork and extracurricular activities, she has worked part-time in various positions including a summer internship for U.S. Senator Bob Corker. Johnson’s passion for the University of Tennessee and the College of Business Administration are clear through all she does.

“I hope that through my service, my love for our university will be able to shine through to those whose lives I have come across during my time at UT,” Johnson says. “No matter where life takes me when I graduate, I will forever be indebted to this university and my heart will always lead me home.”
