Johnson, emeritis professor of sociology, and Mrs. Johnson, instructor of speech and drama, in honor of his parents who were long-time educators in the Louisiana public school system. The scholarship is awarded each year to the junior or senior major who has shown general excellence and academic promise in the field of sociology.
