A huge congratulations to Kim Johnson who has been awarded a British Empire Medal in the new year honours.


Kim is an arts education consultant for the county council’s Virtual School – a team of educational professionals who work alongside schools and settings to provide the best education for children and young people in our care.

Kim was awarded the medal for her services to the arts, education and to young people.

Kim says:

"I am greatly honoured to receive a British Empire Medal. I accept it on behalf of everyone who has been involved in the work that is being credited, which aims to grow in each and every child the personal creativity and cultural confidence to enable them to become independent and active citizens. I am proud to have been able to develop this work in Derbyshire, and for it to be so positively acknowledged."
