Bobbie Flynn-Johnson Award
June 8, 2020
This Staples Tuition Grant was established in honor of Bobbie Flynn-Johnson to reflect her wholehearted commitment to helping young students succeed. As a special education teacher at Coleytown Elementary School for a remarkable 37 years, Mrs. Flynn-Johnson selflessly dedicated her time and attention to her students and their families. She retired in 2020 as a champion for student learning and achievement. She worked tirelessly to help her students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Mrs. Flynn-Johnson’s love for her children permeated everything she did at CES. She encouraged her students to work hard, keep a positive attitude, and reach their maximum potential. This scholarship will be awarded in Mrs. Flynn-Johnson’s honor to a graduating senior who embodies the same dedication and passion for helping others succeed as she has. The recipient of this scholarship will be a student who demonstrates consistent dedication to his or her work and who embraces every opportunity to succeed. The recipient will demonstrate a commitment to working with children and a desire to pursue a career in education, advocacy, or youth services.
