Harold & Eldeane Johnson Scholarship
Fund Background: The Harold & Eldeane Johnson Scholarship was created by gifts from their children upon the death of Eldeane in January of 2009.

Harold was a 1934 graduate of Lisbon High School. Eldeane graduated from Verona High School in 1942. Harold and Eldeane were married in the fall of 1942 settling on the Johnson homestead NW of Lisbon in Tuller Township.
