Kelvin Johnson Named Ashford University’s Outstanding Alum of the Month

Kelvin Johnson has been named Ashford University’s Outstanding Alum of the Month for June 2017. While working at a plant nursery, Kelvin realized he needed to pursue his education to further his career. Although he held a Kelvin Johnson Ashford Alumnibachelor of science in agriculture degree from Virginia State University, that degree did not fulfill Johnson.
