KRJ Scholarship

Keith R Johnson Scholarship

Keith Johnson was a devoted supporter of education and music. He gave valuable advice and council to many relatives and friends. As an avid singer and guitar player in his church, Keith loved all music genres. Keith strongly supported the mission of SOUNDS Academy.

The KRJ Scholarship was created in order to provide collegiate experience for children in SOUNDS Academy.
