PHH Foundation welcomes Johnson as new chair

Posted: Friday, February 8, 2019

Nicole Johnson, of Edward Jones Investments, has become the new board chair of Parkview Huntington Foundation. She succeeds Jeremy Nix, who is serving his final year on the board as immediate past chair.

Johnson has been a board member since 2015, and served as vice chair in 2017 and 2018. She has been a licensed financial advisor for 20 years, the past 18 of those operating her own Edward Jones office in Huntington.

Johnson, a graduate of Huntington North High School, grew up on a farm in Huntington County. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a minor in business, from Ball State University. She is active in a number of community organizations, and has been at the helm of the boards of directors of the Huntington County Extension Office, Tri-Kappa Sorority, Family-Centered Services in Huntington, the Huntington Rotary Club and the Chambers of Commerce in Huntington and Warren. She also serves as the music worship leader at the Lancaster Wesleyan Church in Huntington County.

Johnson and her husband, Darren, are the parents of two sons and a daughter.

Johnson was welcomed in her new role by outgoing board chair Jeremy Nix at the foundation’s January meeting. Nix chaired the board in 2017 and 2018. He joined the foundation board in 2011, and will complete his third and final term as a member on December 31 of this year.

“The foundation genuinely appreciates Jeremy’s enthusiastic commitment for the past two years,” said Mike Perkins, director, Parkview Huntington Foundation, “and I’m sure that level of involvement will continue with Nicole as chair. It is a busy time for the foundation, and we are fortunate to have dedicated board members like Jeremy and Nicole filling this important leadership role.”

In addition to his private practice as Jeremy K. Nix, Attorney at Law, Nix is chief deputy prosecuting attorney for Huntington County.

He and his wife, Mindy, and their children reside in Huntington County.
