Christopher Carr, a 2010 graduate of Johnson High School, lived every moment of his young life to the fullest. He was an Eagle Scout, and his Eagle project is the flagstone pathway located in the front of the school campus. In January 2011, Chris left behind a school and community who had benefited from knowing him and his zest for life. He was well-known for his caring ways and a big smile that would melt your heart. Chris was a student at the University of Texas, San Antonio where he was a Biology major with plans to become a Pharmacist.

In his honor, the Christopher Clayton Carr Memorial Scholarship was founded by friends and family. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide recognition and financial assistance for a graduating senior from Johnson. The student selected for the scholarship must have demonstrated their ability and desire to achieve academically, and shown involvement and leadership in school activities and in the community.

The scholarship committee chaired by Patti Snider, lead counselor at Johnson, had the difficult task of going through the many qualified applications to make the decision on who would be the 2014 receipt of the Christopher Clayton Carr Memorial Scholarship. It was a difficult decision as there were many qualified candidates. This year two candidates were selected to each receive a $1,000 scholarship. The two students selected are Danielle Renee Diaz and Hunter Joseph Rittimann. Both students will be attending Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
