TyLeslie Johnson recognized by State of Georgia

Griffin High School’s own TyLeslie Johnson was honored as the state award winner in this year’s Positive Athlete Georgia Program.

Positive Athlete Georgia is a movement featuring high character current and former professional athletes, led by former UGA star and Super Bowl XL MVP Hines Ward, who are established and credible role models to young athletes. Positive Athlete is an umbrella brand for all athletes who are making a positive contribution to their communities, over coming difficult circumstances with a positive attitude, and believe a positive attitude is essential to their success.

The award is distributed to those who have displayed an optimistic attitude, teammate encouragement, servant leadership, heart for others, ability to admit imperfections, giving 100 percent always, and exemplifying the fact that there is no “I” in team.

Coach Lee stated “There is not another student athlete more deserving of this award that I know of than, TyLeslie Johnson. This young lady has had some major obstacles to overcome but has never allowed them to affect her academically or athletically,” said Girl’s Head Basketball Coach Veronica Lee.
