Higher education visionary feted during charity dinner at Daytona 500 Club
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University President John Johnson, with his son, Scott, at left and WNDB Radio personality Marc Bernier, was feted at a dinner Thursday night attended by 350-plus community leaders at the Daytona 500 Club on the grounds of Daytona International Speedway.
DAYTONA BEACH -- When pre-teen Scott Johnson went to the barber for a haircut, he took his father's advice to heart of striking up a conversation.
In doing so, he learned that the barber was a stockbroker for 12 years, or so he was told, thinking to himself, "And he cuts hair, too."
The lesson learned? "People are easy to talk to. They work and like to have fun."
