North Point names A.K. Johnson, recent graduate to Hall of Fame

North Point High School hosted its first Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Friday, Oct. 31 and honored A.K. Johnson, director of student activities for Charles County Public Schools, and Robyn Parks, a 2010 North Point graduate and former Charles County student athlete.  During the ceremony, both Johnson and Parks were honored with plaques of recognition that will hang in the athletics hallway at the school. They were also presented as Hall of Fame inductees during the North Point home football game that evening.

Johnson was recognized for his efforts in establishing the athletics program at North Point. He was named as North Point’s athletic director when the school opened in 2005 and was key in the launch of an integrated athletics program for students. Johnson served as the athletic director at North Point for seven years before taking a leadership position in 2012 to oversee student activities countywide. During his tenure at North Point, Johnson mentored and trained a coaching staff to best serve students, and helped to establish a supportive culture among community, staff, students and school administration. In 2010, Johnson was named the Maryland State Athletic Directors Association (MSADA) Athletic Director of the Year for District 4, which covers Charles, Calvert and St. Mary’s counties.

Prior to joining CCPS, Johnson served as the athletic director at T.C. Williams High School with Alexandria City Public Schools for 14 years. During his tenure in Virginia, Johnson earned the title of Track Coach of the Year by the Washington Post seven times and was inducted into the Virginia High School League Hall of Fame in 1999.

Parks is a former basketball player at North Point and was the first player to reach 1,000 points. She served as a team captain and most valuable player, and was named the Southern Maryland Athletic Conference (SMAC) Player of the Year twice. She was also named to the local All Metro Teams several times during her basketball career at North Point. Parks attended Virginia Commonwealth University, where she played basketball and earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She was recently signed to play in the Spanish Women’s League on the Club Baloncesto Islas Canarias team.

Also recognized during the ceremony were players on the North Point 2008 boys state champion track and field team. Included in the ceremony was a Hall of Fame dinner, with proceeds benefiting the North Point boosters scholarship fund.
