The Johnson Scholarship Program brings more than just great students to Washington and Lee's historic campus. It also brings the world's greatest leaders.
$15 million of the Johnson gift has been earmarked for the Johnson Lecture and Symposia Series. The series aims to bring the world's leaders to campus so that our students may learn from their experiences the qualities of honor, leadership and integrity. Since its inception, the Johnson Program featured high-profile dignitaries and professionals such as Associate Justice Clarence Thomas, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, former British Secretary of the Cabinet Lord Robin Butler, and award winning author Liza Mundy, and co-sponsored lecture series on both "Lincoln for the Ages" and "Leadership and Literature."
