The Louise A. Lee Johnson Memorial Scholarship

On March 12, 1999, the Chapter was presented with an endowment of $10,000, as well as the transfer of oil leases, from Harald V. Johnson, of Bensenville, Illinois, to establish the Louise A. Lee Johnson Memorial Scholarship. Mrs. Johnson was the valedictorian of Cheyenne High School in 1935.  She graduated with honors from the University of Colorado and was elected to Φβκ in 1939. She arrived in France on a scholarship in 1939, but soon after her arrival there World War II threatened, and she returned to Wyoming. Mrs. Johnson participated in the University of Wyoming chartering in 1940. 

The Chapter decided to award scholarships from this fund to juniors with a perfect 4.0 GPA who are inducted into Phi Beta Kappa and return for studies the following fall.
