Shane Johnson has completed undergraduate degrees in the fields of History and Education. Through extensive reading, researching, and collaboration, he recognizes the unique role of History in shaping the consciousness of a people. History should be sought to enlighten society about the world in which it finds itself, to build on the successes and failures of those who came before. While humans collectively create their own fate, voices from the past are always waiting to light the path.

  “History cannot provide confirmation that something better is inevitable; but it can uncover evidence that it is conceivable”.
