The American Association of Community Colleges appointed Abe Johnson to its commission on economic and workforce development. Johnson is vice president and provost of the Collin College-Spring Creek campus.

The commission is tasked with researching how to close American wage gaps by putting a focus on career and technical education. Johnson’s seat on the commission will last through June 2022. The Spring Creek campus is located at 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano. 972-881-5790. www.collin.edu
