Melissa Johnson


Melissa Johnson was nominated by Principal Garry Lawson of Samuel Clemens Elementary School. Ms. Johnson has been a volunteer at Samuel Clemens since 2014. As a neighbor who lives across the street from the school, Ms. Johnson demonstrates her value for safety and always ensures that she has her eyes open when it comes to the school. She has continuous communication with school staff and is always ready to inform them on importance issues to ensure the school property is safe.

Ms. Johnson wears many hats as a volunteer at Samuel Clemens. She holds the role of Chairperson for the School Governance Council, helps in classrooms, assists with after school dismissal, school fundraisers and the distribution of various school communications for students. She has been a great help to the school this year as she assists the cafeteria staff with lunch and breakfast for students.

While the beginning stages of the pandemic did not allow volunteers to serve in-person, Ms. Johnson stayed positive and waited patiently for communication from the school on when she could return. When the district permitted in-person engagement this school year, Ms. Johnson gladly accepted the offer. Thank you, Ms. Johnson, for being a valuable member of the Samuel Clemens School Community.
