Dewees Island Welcomes New Staff Member Sully Johnston

Dewees Island welcomes our newest POA staff member, Sully Johnston. Sully is looking forward to working with Dewees Island and our ferry department part-time. Born in Spartanburg and slowly migrating towards the coast, Sully grew up running the lakes and waterways of South Carolina. He moved permanently to the Charleston area thirty three years ago to attend the College of Charleston. A full time high school and college math instructor, he is only a handful of years from retirement from the state. Captain Sully has worked previously running eco-tours out of Bohicket Creek/North Edisto River as well as downtown party cruises on the Ashley River.  A resident of Johns Island, he is married (his wife also a teacher) and enjoys playing music and also loves the outdoors, especially hiking, hunting and fishing with his son, a senior at the College of Charleston.
