The Varsity Club Chapter of the Virginia State University Alumni Association is set to honor Dr. Paulette Walker Johnson at the 2017 VSU Alumni Winter Festival, hosted by the VSU National Alumni Association.

Johnson will be presented with the VSUAA Varsity Club's Humanitarian Award, in recognition of her service and commitment to the VSU community.

"Dr. Johnson has been one of VSU's greatest ambassadors and has been an integral part in contributing to the betterment of the University. Her lasting impact has been an inspiration to us all. We are honored to celebrate Dr. Johnson," said Tiffani Sykes, president of the VSUAA Varsity Club.

Johnson coached VSU’s first intercollegiate softball team, capturing the CIAA title in 1979.  This was the first CIAA championship won by a women’s sports team in school history.

Johnson’s most recognizable contribution to VSU is as founder and head coach of the nationally recognized VSU “Woo Woos” cheerleading squad.  She was a founding member of the CIAA Cheerleader Coaches Association and was elected as the association’s first president.  Additionally, she was the first woman to serve as athletic director in VSU’s history.

Dr. Johnson was enshrined in the VSU Wall of Fame in 2003 and the CIAA Hall of Fame in 2011.

Johnson's leadership extended beyond the athletics arena.  She was also an associate professor in the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation until her retirement.

The Dinwiddie County native is an alumna of Morgan State University, where she was a member of the cheerleading squad.  She went on to earn her master’s degree from Springfield College and her doctorate from Virginia Tech.

The VSU Alumni Winter Fest will be highlighted by the VSU basketball teams hosting Elizabeth City State University in a CIAA double-header.  The women’s contest will tip-off at 1:00 p.m., followed by the men’s contest, which is slated for 4:00 p.m. The men’s contest is a part of the CIAA TV broadcast schedule, which will air on the ASPiRE TV network.  Both games will take place in the VSU Multi-Purpose Center, with Johnson being honored at halftime of the men’s contest.

For more information on the VSUAA Varsity Club, contact Tiffani Sykes at (757) 434-3108.

The VSUAA Varsity Club Humanitarian Award is presented annually to a leader in the VSU community, who embodies the principles of the VSUAA and has shown a commitment to the advancement of the Virginia State University athletics program.

The Drum / US Olympic Committee FLAME Program
« on: April 01, 2013, 11:32:07 PM »
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) has empowered minority students with the F.L.A.M.E. (Finding Leaders Among Minorities Everywhere) program, a dynamic, educational program packed with leadership enhancement opportunities. This year, we will celebrate the 20th year of F.L.A.M.E. program and we are planning a very special event.

F.L.A.M.E. is designed to inspire minority college students to cultivate their desire to succeed and rise above the ordinary.  The young men and women selected to participate, who already demonstrate a pursuit of excellence within their own communities, have the opportunity to further their personal and professional growth through unique seminars and workshops led by Olympic and Paralympic athletes, USOC and National Governing Body (NGB) leaders and others who have achieved personal, professional or athletic success in life.

During the four-day program, F.L.A.M.E. participants will reside in the Olympic Training Center dormitory, eat at the Athlete Dining Hall, and have daily opportunities to interact with Olympians, Paralympians, and hopefuls. The program’s itinerary includes motivational presentations by Olympians and Paralympians, leadership seminars conducted by USOC and NGB staff leaders, networking and financial literacy workshops, Olympic/Paralympic sport demonstrations, field trips to local attractions, and information on the USOC Internship Program.

Previous speakers at the F.L.A.M.E. program have included Olympians and Paralympians such as five-time basketball medalist Teresa Edwards (1984, '88, '92, '96, '00); silver and gold  speedskating medalist Derek Parra (1998, ’02); and Paralympic judo medalist Dartanyon Crockett (2012) to name a few.

How to Apply

Qualified applicants should be minority undergraduate or graduate students (ages 18-24) who have demonstrated leadership through academics, athletics and community involvement.  Special consideration will be given to applicants pursuing a degree in the field of sport management.  Additionally, applicants must have a minimum college grade point average (GPA) of 2.75. Applications are available online at www.TeamUSA.org or by calling USOC F.L.A.M.E. staff member Tim Henderson at 719-866-4837 or Christine Taylor at 719-866-4888. The application deadline is April 19, 2013.
