Johnny Douglas Conner was a beloved father who demonstrated the power of hardwork and determination. 

In Johnny’s younger years, he did not have much. He was given a hard childhood. His decision to join the military was to make sure he strived for a successful life to support his family. Family was everything to Johnny, which gave him his strength and inspiration. 

While serving his country, Johnny was able to connect with one particular helicopter, YN19- HMM 363. On Johnnys last tour home, he carved his initials into the door of the helicopter. Later in life, Johnny reconnected with the same helicopter and restored it back to life with other veterans. YN19 now is the center of focus of the USMC MUSEUM in Triangle, VA. 

Besides Johnnys children and family, the helicopter and his marine background were a big aspect to Johnnys success. Johnny never stopped striving to learn all he could to be the backbone for his children. 

This scholarship aims to honor the memory of Johnny Douglas by supporting students who have been impacted by the military.
