The young, aspiring machinist and manager Christian Johnson had to take some time off work on Wednesday to collect an award from Lanier Technical College — just what the college wants to see. Johnson, the 20-year-old son of local chefs Bruce and Kim Johnson, was given the Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership by Lanier Tech on Wednesday. The GOAL is the highest honor a student can receive from the state’s technical college system.
