My name is Patrick Johnston and I am a founding board member of KCIA and a retired structural engineer. I have a degree in Architectural Engineering from Kansas State University. In 1986 I started my structural engineering firm Johnston Burkholder Associates, where we designed buildings all over the United States. I retired in 2017 and spend my time traveling, and volunteering. My mother was a junior high math teacher and I have a passion for helping kids learn. We love KCIA. The kids, teachers and staff are exciting and fun to be around. I enjoy spending time volunteering in the classroom.
