State Representative Michael Ashford (D-Toledo) this week honored Area Office of Aging of Northwest Ohio’s President and CEO, Billie Johnson with House Resolution (HR) 276. Earlier this year Mrs. Johnson received the 2017 President’s Award from the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, the most prestigious award the organization gives during its national conference in Savannah, Georgia.

“The work Billie Johnson has done for older residents here in Northwest Ohio is outstanding and worthy of recognition,” said Rep. Ashford. “Her passion, commitment and dedication to making a difference is appreciated by many.”

As president and CEO, Johnson helped grow the local office in Northwest Ohio from just a few employees to over 100 employees with an annual budget of $32 million, which serves the needs of more than 40,000 seniors in Northwest Ohio.
