Mavis Johnson is the daughter of  Chuck and Sheryl Johnson and sister to Cailie, Clifton and Madelyne.

Mavis is an exemplary leader who sets the bar high by her example. She continually uses the life skills of patience, respect, perseverance, flexibility, friendship and effort on a daily basis. Her spark and smile never falter, even when the going gets tough.

Teachers and staff at Valley View Elementary can always count on Mavis to volunteer when help is needed or one of her peers need assistance. She also contributes in class where her positive approach becomes contagious. It is not long before her fellow classmates catch some of her spirit and “can-do” attitude.

Described as a delightful student, Mavis displays a positive joy for life and has a great impact on her classmates and teachers.

At Valley View, Mavis is a servant leader for the school store as she assists the other students with a smile once again. As a Safety for her school, Mavis takes her role very seriously. As with her studies, she is punctual and responsible in that role as well. Mavis is especially nurturing with younger students.

Mavis’ leadership transcends the classroom and school setting as well. She participates in many activities, including soccer and volleyball. Mavis is her brother and sister’s biggest fan as they pursue their own athletic careers. Mavis loves animals, as is evidenced by having two dogs and three cats that she independently cares for.

Finally, Mavis wants to be a mom and a teacher when she grows up—more evidence of her servant leadership attitude. Mavis helps to make Valley View the special school family that it is. For all her fine qualities, Mavis Johnson is clearly an Example in Excellence at Valley View Elementary School.
