Athletic Director
Tim Johnston, CAA

This is Mr. Johnston’s 6th year at EGR – before coming to EGR he was a high school principal for 14 years, and an athletic director before that for 5 years. He’s thrilled to be back in athletics, especially at EGR where they offer 34 varsity sports!

He spent much of his early career coaching – football, wrestling and baseball – so if you see him on the sidelines, you’ll understand why, it’s like his second home.

He received his Bachelor’s from Grand Valley State, and his Masters from Michigan State University.

Mr. Johnston currently serves on MHSAA girls lacrosse committee and is a member of the MHSAA Board of Canvassers. He previously served on the tennis and ski committees . Mr. Johnston has hosted a number of MHSAA district, regional and state tournaments for the MHSAA, including boys lacrosse and ski..

He is a CAP Instructor for the MHSAA, and has been a presenter at the  Michigan Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association Conference and presented at the 2016 National Conference. In 2017, was named MIAAA: Region 4 Athletic Director of the Year.17424895_1458727507491866_917948710060934099_n
