The Michael D. Johnson Memorial Foundation Athletic Scholarship was created to award one deserving Jackson Public School (JPS) student a $1500 annual scholarship (totaling one full college semester as a Freshman) to be used towards their college education. Through donations and fundraisers we have been able to award scholarships to JPS students.

We need your help in order to help more prospective students. In 2011 the Michael D. Johnson Foundation 5K Walk/Run was started and serves as a fundraiser for the Athletic Scholarship. The Walk/Run begins and ends in downtown Jackson near the War Memorial grounds.

Checks should be made payable to: The Michael D. Johnson Foundation
