Betty Flinn Johnson Endowed Scholarship
In many ways, Betty Flinn Johnson grew up with Franklin College. Her parents lived near the campus, and her father had attended the school. Her parents were supporters of the college and its students; her mother served as a patroness of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Mrs. Johnson graduated from Franklin in 1941. Her husband, Robert A. Johnson, served on the Board of Trustees and, later, her daughter, Susan Johnson DeVoss, would do the same. Mrs. Johnson's active involvement on campus committees and at college functions earned her not only respect and affection, but an Alumni Citation. She was an alumna of Delta Delta Delta sorority and an advisor to the Franklin chapter. She also was a volunteer with Methodist Hospital's Children's Pavilion, St. Vincent's Hospital and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Following her death in 1991, the Betty Flinn Johnson Endowed Scholarship was established by her husband in her honor.
The Betty Flinn Johnson Endowed Scholarship is given to an outstanding junior majoring in elementary education or English. The vice president for academic affairs will select the recipient based on recommendations from the chairs of the education and English departments.
