Respectful. Responsible. Giving. Grateful. These are the characteristics of someone who dedicates their life to making the community a better place. Such is the case for Craig R. Johnson, CPA, Chairman of the HFA Executive Committee and Partner in HFA's Tax Department, who will be inducted into the Jackson Alumni Hall of Fame next month. The Jackson Alumni Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit organization that recognizes individuals that make significant contributions to their communities through charitable service. It also offers scholarships to graduating seniors at Jackson Memorial and Jackson Liberty High School for demonstrating both academic excellence and commitment to their community.
A lifelong resident of Jackson, Johnson is one of four individuals who will be inducted into the 2019 Class of the Jackson Alumni Hall of Fame. "It is an absolute honor to be inducted into an organization that recognizes people for doing what they love to do," said Johnson. "I love to help others and give to others as I can, and I am blessed to be recognized for that."
The induction will take place on October 20th in Jackson. "These inductees have worked to enrich the lives and the community in which they live and serve," said Walter Reed, Chairman of the Jackson Alumni Hall of Fame.
Johnson has nearly 30 years of experience providing tax, accounting and consulting services to business owners. Prior to joining HFA in 2014, Johnson developed a successful tax practice in Jackson. His significant expertise in small business professional service is a great benefit to many of HFA's entrepreneurial clients who seek growth through geographical and service expansion.
Johnson's passion for helping others has become part of HFA's culture. The firm recently unveiled its new vision, which employs a 'People First' mantra, underlining team development at its core. "I strive to be one of the leaders of the firm for years to come," said Johnson. "We have so many great professionals here and I am fortunate to work with each and every one of them."
