"It is unbelievable how much I have grown to love it here at Wesley College. Before I made my college decision, I knew I wanted to be close to home so I could visit my family often. But when I'm too busy to make it back to my hometown, it's okay because I have found a family in my fellow Wolverines! Overall, the student body is friendly and the faculty is accessible but my favorite part about campus is Wentworth Gymnasium. Basketball isn't just a sport that I play, or a hobby that I do on my free time.  Basketball helps me escape and clear my mind and the gym is almost always available to all students. Wesley is a small school, but it certainly has a lot to offer. From study abroad to work study, Wesley College has a variety of clubs, organizations and activities that students can be a part of.  As a sports management major, I have learned the importance of networking and developed better social skills which will prepare me for my overall goal of becoming an Athletic Director. I love Wesley College and I'm proud I chose to be a Wolverine!"

Johnson started her collegiate career with a bang, being named to the N.C. Wesleyan Jean Edge Eagle Classic All-Tournament Team and carried that through the entire season to being named the capital Athletic Conference Rookie of the Year.  The Smyrna High School product who was named the Delaware State High School Girls Basketball Player of the Year, led the CAC in rebounding at 10.6 per game while averaging a team-high 16.0 points, good enough for sixth in the conference. Recording 11 double-doubles, Johnson scored in double figures in all but four games and scored at least 20 points nine times.

Also impressive in the classroom, Johnson carries over a 3.1 GPA in Sport Management.
