Marjorie Johnson is the Vice Principal at Impact Academy, Envision Education.

“I believe the Surge Fellowship is a movement rather than just a program because those in the fellowship are taking what they learn back into their educational system and creating change. The leaders that will be developed within this Fellowship will have a stronger sense of self, their leadership, and what role they will play in making changes in our educational system. ‘If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.’ – African Proverb. This quote recognizes that for effective social movements, they require people to be in community.”
