Mark Johnson’s path to BYU-Pathway began in 2013 when he worked as an advisor for PathwayConnect students in Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Idaho. In the time since Mark first started as a student employee, he has proven invaluable and has now been hired full-time as a Pathway Support Center specialist. In this position, Mark oversees the day-to-day operations in the Pathway Support Center and helps student employees efficiently serve the PathwayConnect students that call or email with questions.
As the Pathway Support Center specialist, Mark hopes to be a mentor to the student employees he works with. He believes that by showing the student employees their potential, they can then help PathwayConnect students see their own potential.
“When I can help others know that God loves them and show them they are helping in His work, then I know that I am successfully doing my job,” Mark said.
Mark grew up in Owasso, Oklahoma, where he and many friends planned on attending Brigham Young University-Idaho together. After graduating high school and moving to Rexburg, he was introduced to a young woman named Janae who was a roommate of his friend from home. Mark and Janae soon married and are anxiously expecting their first child, a little girl, in March 2017.
