Let me take a minute to introduce you to one of the most hard working girls I know, Sophia Grace Johnson. Sophia is a 15 year old young lady with a tenacious passion for volleyball and an obvious God given talent that has helped her get to this point in her life. Sophia is a freshman at North Lamar High School in Paris, Texas and is on the varsity volleyball team. She is the daughter of Lance and Cari Johnson and is no stranger to adversity. At a very young age, her father was diagnosed with ALS and as a family they have walked this difficult journey together—but you better believe that even though simple tasks that you and I take for granted are now very difficult for Lance, he is in the stands supporting Sophia at every game and tournament possible.
Recently, Sophia was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to train with former Olympic Gold Medalist, AVP World Champion and NCAA Coach Pat Powers. She was 1 of ONLY 8 girls chosen in the ENTIRE United States to attend this prestigious training camp in Carlsbad, California. WHAT AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY!! While at this camp, she will continue her studies through a homeschool program and vigorous work out and practices. This has the potential to open up many collegiate scholarship opportunities and possible career opportunities for this dedicated and gifted athlete! Because of the level of care needed at home, Lance and Cari will be unable to travel with Sophia, however her older sister Selena will be able to accompany her as her guardian to assist with her care while she is away from home. All funds raised will help alleviate the burden off of this precious family, while helping them provide their caring, compassionate, and trustworthy daughter the opportunity of a lifetime. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and for your support of Sophia! It is appreciated more than words can say.

So let the training begin. This will be a opportunity of a life time. We haven't reached our goal yet. So please share this message. If you don't want to give to go fund me, an account has been set at First Federal.
