The Arapahoe Pinnacle

Vicki Johnson

Vicki Johnson, Political Reporter

Vicki is a Denver native and has always lived in Colorado. She has returned to Arapahoe Community College (ACC) again to obtain a degree in Journalism. In 2007, she received her A.A.S. in Paralegal Studies at ACC.

Vicki enjoyed the paralegal program and continues to thrive as a paralegal in the civil litigation field. Over the years however, two bright embers of interest burned steadily--writing and politics. Vicki loves to write. She had also adopted a healthy obsession with national politics following the U.S. Supreme Court Opinion that gave George W. Bush the 2000 Election, the Presidency, instead of Al Gore.

After the tragedy of September 11, 2001, she began watching news more diligently, learning more and more about how our democratic form of government works along the way.

In 2008, when President Obama came on stage, Vicki realized she was on the sea-ship of political change in our national politics. She began donating to political candidates and causes, and speaking out on social media.

The election of 2016, to Vicki, was equivalent to the election of 2000—mind numbing surprise, experiencing all the stages of the loss, and then ultimately embracing a stronger determination to help—to help unite people, not divide people.

After being a reporter for the Arapahoe Pinnacle, this year Vicki is working with the journalism team as News/Politics Editor and Opinion Writer, learning the ins-and-outs of news editing and new media, such as Facebook and Twitter presence, reporting, and sourcing.
