Chantell Johnson, who graduated this past May from Truman, was featured on ABC’s “Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition” on July 30.
The two-hour program featured Johnson, whose dream, in addition to losing a lot of weight, was to return to Truman and complete her degree. The ABC team visited the Truman campus several times as they followed her yearlong journey of losing weight while finishing her degree. One of those team visits occurred on May 11, when they filmed Johnson receiving her diploma.
Johnson is now serving as a continuous improvement consultant for a manufacturing company in Scottsdale, Ariz.
