2019 Veteran’s Scholarship Winner – Avianna Johnson
Congratulations to our 2019 Boyk Law Veteran’s Scholarship winner, Avianna Johnson! Avianna is the daughter and granddaughter of two Army Veterans. She is inspired and motivated by her hardworking, dedicated mother, who served 11 years as an Officer in the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions and continued to support Avianna and her two siblings. Avianna is a 2019 graduate of Buckhorn High School in New Market, Alabama. She graduated at the top of her class with a 4.0 GPA while serving as the Executive/Student Body Secretary, volunteering for several different organizations, and holding a part-time job. Avianna was determined to graduate with honors to show her mother how grateful she was for all her sacrifices.
She is now a freshman at the University of Memphis studying Human Resource Management. When asked about the passion she has for her degree in HRM Avianna said, “I was raised to treat all people with respect and dignity, and to expect no less than the same in return. As a future human resources manager, my lifetime goal is to become a HR Director. I want to give all employees victimized by EEO and Civil Rights violations a voice…I want to devote my education to help change the world and to build stronger communities and families, by fighting to end discrimination and fighting to end EEO and Civil Rights violations in the workplace.”
