Antonio Johnson Scholarship Gala

Exemplifying  Excellence

The Antonio Johnson Scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Antonio Johnson, who began his academic career at Xavier in June 1971. While majoring in Urban Studies, he participated in the school band and was an active member of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as president of the Black Student Association, single-handedly organizing activities for Black Awareness Month in February 1976. Unfortunately, he died at age 22 on February 8 of that year. He is remembered as a caring, compassionate, confident, and articulate individual dedicated to social change and justice.

The Antonio Johnson Scholarship Award is presented each year to a junior of African descent with demonstrated academic excellence (3.0 minimum cumulative GPA), outstanding leadership, involvement, service, and a history of significant contributions to the Black Student Association and/or the Xavier University community.
