About Tracy

Over the years, The Loveland Initiative has awarded over twenty college scholarships to high-school graduates living in the Loveland City School District. We created our scholarship fund in the memory of Tracy L Johnson, a past resident of Westover Village in Loveland.

She attended Loveland high school for two years and transferred to the Cincinnati academy of physical education where her physical needs could be better met.

Upon graduation, Tracy enrolled at Wright state university to study sociology but had to abandon these plans when she encountered challenges with physical care away from home. Not to be deterred, she transferred to Raymond Walters College to continue her dream of a college education. Heart problems (a complication of her illness) forced her to postpone her dream. With continued perseverance, and only five months before her death, Tracy enrolled at Raymond Walters a second time. Her illness once again (her third try) forced her to abandon her college dreams. Her uncle Milton said, “Tracy just wanted to learn.” In honor of Tracy’s strength and courage and her lifelong desire to go to college, this scholarship will carry her name.

Tracy was a young, talented woman who died from Muscular Dystrophy before realizing her dream to finish college.
