STOCKTON, Ala. (WKRG) — His birth name is Adrian Johnson. But his parents say you’ll be hard-pressed to find many people who know that because he goes by “Goose.”
Johnson died last month in a car crash. He was 19 years old.
Now, his parents are making sure his legacy is preserved, through a scholarship they’ve launched with Thompson Caterpillar Tractors as well as South Georgia Technical College, where Johnson was set to graduate in May.
“What better way to honor his legacy than start a scholarship in his name,” his mother Amber told News 5.
The first recipients will receive vouchers for tools upon graduation. After this year, the money will help future students pay for room and board.
Johnson was a recipient of Thompson Caterpillar Tractors’ “Think Big” scholarship. Those who will receive Goose’s memorial scholarship will have to be “Think Big” recipients as well.
His parents want to be able to provide these funds every year. If you would like to participate, you can send a donation to the following address:
