Johnson Spotlight: Cliff McCartney

What is your title/position at Johnson University?

Chief Information Officer. That means I’m responsible for IT and the strategic use of technology.

How long have you worked at Johnson University?

Since November of 2011.Cliff McCartney

What is your favorite food?

Hot wings.

If you could spend 15 minutes with anyone living, who would you meet and why?

That’s a tough question, but the truth is that I am around interesting and amazing people every day, and I’d love to just spend more time with them.

What are your hobbies?

I love photography. I’m the one you see walking around campus, or at athletic events taking pictures. I also love to read, and tinker with gadgets of all types.

What would you do if you had a million dollars?

I’d give 90% of it to Kingdom work, and then I’d fund a year-long trip around the world for me and my wife, just to take pictures.

What is one interesting fact about yourself?

I’ve completed 2 marathons, and I used to be a very active triathlete. I can’t do either now because of injuries.

What is the best gift you ever received?

God’s grace.

What is your favorite quote/scripture?

Proverbs 16:3, and I especially like it from The Voice: “Whatever you do, do it as service to [God], and He will guarantee your success.”

Cliff was an over-achiever for answering ALL the Spotlight questions. So thank you for being a willing participant and for all your hard-work and efforts to make Johnson University Tennessee what it is today!
