One high school student from CNE is honored at the first Rotary meeting of each month during the school year. Students who are nominated for this award live their lives in a manner that exemplifies the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self.”
Johnson’s school accolades as well as his community involvement qualified him for this award.
“Jeff leads by example,” said Matt Earley, CNE High School Principal. “He is a positive role model for other students in our district.”
Johnson has been a member of the CNE National Honor Society for two years, serving one of those years as Vice President. He is one of the Top Ten students of his class in 2012, is a member of the LEO Club, and participated in the club’s Christmas food and clothing drive. Johnson is also a very active athlete. He has played four years of basketball, with two years on the Varsity team; spent four years on Varsity Track, serving as Team Captain.; and has played one year of Varsity Soccer.
In addition to his busy school and sports schedule, Johnson is a member of the Owensville United Methodist Church youth group and volunteers with Vacation Bible School each year.
He plans to attend college upon graduation and major in occupational therapy.
In his spare time, Johnson enjoys the company of his parents, Lisa and Frank Johnson and sister Andrea, all of Jackson Township.
