Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson Talks to Local Teenagers about Character

Published in

Cadets Individually Greeting Sheriff Johnson After Presentation

11/19/2015 — This past Tuesday Sheriff Terry Johnson visited the Burlington Composite Squadron to talk to local teens about what character is, why character is important, and how to build character. Sheriff Johnson started with a discussion of his early life, building up through his middle life, on to his becoming county sheriff, and then to the present moment.

Sheriff Johnson grew up in a working class environment in Alamance County with two parents who were factory workers, loved him, and taught him the importance of discipline, moral judgment, and hard work from a young age. As he grew up he discovered that while he wasn’t the smartest student in his school, his coach had instilled a certain fiery tenacity in him that made him an excellent player on the football field. He was so good that he got a football scholarship to East Carolina University.

After finishing his studies at ECU, Sheriff Johnson put his determination and persistence to succeed to good use getting his first job in law enforcement as a deputy for the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office. After a year with Pitt County, he moved on to become a State Bureau of Investigation Agent. Around the time he retired from the SBI, he discovered that the Alamance County Police Department was in shambles with officers being issued uniforms that had seen better days and having to buy their own equipment. It was so bad that he decided he had to do something about it. So he ran for Sheriff and made quick and effective changes to the department starting with new uniforms, letting low quality people go and replacing them with better personnel, instituting new paint schemes for patrol cars, and issuing deputies their equipment. The uniform change was so good that in 2002, their uniform was voted #1 in the nation showing just how much change he made.

While talking about his story, Sheriff Johnson frequently pointed out that his character was what made the difference in his life. He talked about how most of the kids he grew up with were either dead or in jail and how it was his character that made him successful. He had a desire to succeed, learning the importance of hard work, discipline, and a drive to get the job done. He strongly encouraged everyone present to pursue their dreams with tenacity and character to be successful in life.
