Joanna Lopez Inman is a 2004 graduate of Admiral King High School. During her time at Admiral King, Joanna embraced opportunities to grow and develop her skills, leaving a lasting impact on our school community.

In Ms. Falencki's telecommunications class, Joanna discovered her passion for creativity and risk-taking, ultimately penning a script worthy of the Lifetime Movie Net-work. She also fondly recalls Ms. Llewellyn's Genetics class, which not only expanded her knowledge but also spared her from dissecting a baby pig! Joanna's dedication extended beyond the classroom, as she excelled in Track and Field, played on the soccer team, and participated in Student Council, the Senior Committee, and the National Honor Society. A highlight of her high school career was being participating in the 2003 International Festival Pageant, proudly representing the Puerto Rican community.

After graduating from Admiral King, Joanna's thirst for knowledge led her to Case Western Reserve University, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and Spanish, with a minor in Ethnic Studies. Determined to make a difference, she pursued her Juris Doctor Degree at Cleveland State University College of Law.

Armed with her education and passion for justice, Joanna served as an Assistant Prosecutor for the City of Cleveland before becoming an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Cuyahoga County. Her tireless work in the Juvenile Justice Unit, General Felony Unit, and Grand Jury Unit showcased her commitment to fairness and the wellbeing of her community. After nearly eight years as a prosecutor, Joanna was appointed as a Magistrate for the Cleveland Municipal Court, where she served for three years before transitioning to her current role as a Magistrate in the Cleveland Housing Court.

Joanna's dedication extends far beyond her professional life. She actively serves on school boards for the Intergenerational School, Lakeshore Intergenerational School, and Near West Side Intergenerational School, ensuring that future generations receive quality education. As a board member for Catholic Charities and the National Congress of Black Women-Greater Cleveland Chapter, Joanna tirelessly works to uplift and empower her community. She has also generously volunteered her time at the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland.

Joanna's accomplishments are a testament to the values and skills she developed during her time at Admiral King High School. Together with her husband Ramsey, and their children, Ace and Analiya, Joanna continues to make Cleveland a better place for all.
