Kelly Johnson Memorial Scholarship

The Kelly Johnson Scholarship was established as a memorial to Kelly Johnson who was an outstanding Rustler during her high school career at Charles M. Russell High School. She was a member of two state champion swim teams and was an all-state softball player on CMR’s first softball team. Kelly was also an academic standout, earning National Honor Society membership and finishing in the top ten percent of her class.

Kelly died tragically in an accident on July 1, 1991. This scholarship serves as a tribute to the memory of her.
