Charles Johnson Named 2005 
John Batley Award Recipient

April 7, 2005 - One of the traditional highlights of the PAISBOA Annual Meeting is the presentation of the John Batley Award, our highest honor. A former CFO of Westtown School, recipient of the Visionary Award, and the man for whom the John Batley Award was created, John’s legacy is one of selfless giving and inclusion in PAISBOA. We celebrate his character, competence, and consistency each year with the selection of the John Batley Award winner.

For 2005, the John Batley Award was presented to Charles Johnson, former Vice President for Finance at Saint Joseph’s Preparatory School

John Batley, retired Business Manager of the Westtown School, presented Charles Johnson, former Vice President for Finance at St. Joseph’s Preparatory School, with the prestigious “John Batley Distinguished Business Officer Award” for 2005. Named for one of the association’s three founders, this award honors an individual for their professional commitment to the field and volunteer work for the association.

Johnson, a long-term resident of Lafayette Hill in Montgomery County, recently retired from St. Joseph’s Prep after 16 years of distinguished service. He received the Ignatian Award in December 2004 – the Prep’s highest honor. He graduated from St. Joseph’s College with a B.S. in Accounting, received his CPA in Washington, D.C. and his MBA from Drexel University.

Charlie was a PAISBOA Board Member for seven years and held several roles, including tenure on the Executive and Technical Committees and served as the organization’s Secretary. Charlie’s commitment to his peers is also exemplified by his leadership on the Group Purchasing Consortium Committee.

St. Joseph’s Prep received a contribution of $1,000 from PAISBOA in honor of Johnson’s work, which will be used towards financial aid. Established in 1851, The Prep is an independent, private, Catholic college preparatory high school enrolling over 900 boys, regardless of race, religion or ability to pay. It draws its identity from its Jesuit heritage and from its North-Central Philadelphia location. Framed by this basic identity, its mission is to provide a challenging, college-preparatory program for boys from Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, including several counties in South Jersey. The school’s unique identity includes emphasis on Latin, mathematics and the hard sciences – all compulsory courses.
