Reid Johnson, CSFM
Saint Paul Academy and Summit School - 8 Years

Grounds Manager
Certified Sports Field Manager

Member of MPSTMA for 8 years.

I manage the grounds of two urban campuses, totaling 40 acres. I manage 1 other full time employee and 5 seasonal employees during the summer.
Our main duties are turf care, shrub and tree care, gardening, snow removal along with preparing athletic facility for events. I also do planning, budgeting and record keeping.

I have enjoyed the past two years on the MPSTMA Board and would like to continue being involved in such a  fun and rewarding organization. 

What issues should MPSTMA focus on for the future of the association?

Water usage and technology. Hiring, training and retaining seasonal workers. Health and safety of physical laborers. Turf grass science topics

My involvement with MPSTMA has been very beneficial to my career development. The connections I have made with peers and vendors have been rewarding.
Contributing to this organization as a Board Member has been great and I really want  to continue being a part of it.
