2016 Sports Academy Was a Success!

More than 1,000 attendees and 12 guests from the NFL joined us at our 5th Annual Sports Academy & Community Weekend June 17-18 in Charles Johnson’s hometown, Hawkinsville, GA. The two-day event emphasized the benefit of both sports and education for local students in grades 1-12. The free of charge event included clinics in football, basketball, dance, tennis, cheer and STEM. Clinics were led by Johnson, community leaders, local coaches and professional instructors, and many of Johnson’s friends from the NFL. We deeply appreciate the time and effort shared by devoted volunteers that helps make this event possible. With support from Hibbett Sports, the foundation provided free athletic shoes and football cleats to youth participants! Also, for the first time in its five-year history, the Charles Johnson Foundation expanded its scholarship program and presented four $20,000 college scholarships to local senior student-athletes at the event.
