Leader.  Coach.  Mentor.  Cheerleader.  Conscience.  Scribe.  Friend.  These words  describe just a few of the many roles Bruce Johnson, Superintendent Emeritus of Redwood Christian Schools, plays in the Rotary Club of Castro Valley.  His energy, joy, and excitement animate the Club.  His fingerprints are everywhere in the Club and the community.  As a Rotarian committed to Service Above Service, Bruce is deeply involved in activities of the Club handling the public relationship for the Club; serving as the announcer for the Rotary-sponsored Rowell Ranch Rodeo Parade; working with youth, especially as chair for Camp RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards); lending a hand, actually many hands, and playing a special role for the Club’s Children’s Christmas Party as well as securing gifts for the Adopt-a-Family Program; and serving as President of the Rotary Club Endowment Board.  In the community, Bruce serves as the Chair of the Baywood Court Board of Directors, is a member of the Castro Valley Sports Foundation Board of Directors, and was recently named as Business Consultant to the Board of Directors of the Castro Valley/Eden Areal Chamber of Commerce.
In naming Bruce Johnson as the Castro Valley Rotarian of the Month for January 2021, Rotary President Gary Howard noted, “No matter what, Bruce is always ready to help.  His commitment to our community is truly amazing.  It is a great pleasure to recognize Bruce as Rotarian of the Month.”
