Mr. Johnson was selected in 2013 by President Obama to serve a two-year term on the NLRB. During his time there he was involved in adjudicating complex cases over employee’s right.
The NLRB is an independent agency whose members are appointed by the President and confirmed by the US senate that enforces the National Labor Relations Act, one of the fundamental statues governing labor–management relations. The NLRB is charged with conducting labor union representation elections and investigating unfair labor practices.
His classmate, Dr. Tad Yoneyama said this about Harry:
“I regrettably will not be able to attend the ceremony but hope that the current students realize, as Isaac Newton once said, that they are indeed “standing on the shoulders of giants.”
We all knew that Harry was destined to be a superstar. With his intelligence, integrity, ambition, and dry humor, he had all the tools for success. The North Cross Community provided the medium for all the ingredients to synergize and meld into what he is today. Where else would he have been pushed to give it his all on that twelfth mile uphill in the Blue Ridge Parkway (Hugh Meagher- Ancient History and Cross Country)? Or instead of coasting as a senior, allow him to take an eighth class in a seven period day, by meeting before school/at lunch/after school for Latin V (the wonderful Margaret Grayson). I am sure that the experience helped his oratory skills as well.
To all current students, remember that with great power comes great responsibility. Develop your skills at North Cross. Use your powers for the forces of good. Change the world and make it better for all of us.
To Harry, sorry I could not be there but I am sure that the North Cross Community is proud of you and your accomplishments. I am most thankful for all the good memories growing up with you and for your friendship.”
