SAVANNAH, GA. (BRPROUD) — The city of Savannah is renaming an intersection in honor of one of LSU Women’s Basketball stars for her dedication.
19-year-old Flau’jae Johnson is a native of Savannah, Georgia. The intersection will be named after Johnson for her accomplishments.
She is noticed as one of the nation’s youngest female hip-hop artists and athletic ambassadors. Johnson appeared on Lifetime Network’s “The Rap Game” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Johnson was also ranked in the top 10 women’s high school All-American players, selected as a McDonald’s All-American, participated in the Michael Jordan Classic All-Star event and the Allen Iverson Classic, and most recently, won an NCAA championship with the LSU Lady Tigers and chosen as the 2023 Freshman of the Year.
Johnson’s sports and musical talents aren’t the only thing she is recognized for. Johnson is noticed for her community service in her hometown as she donated $10,000 to her local Boys and Girls Club, according to reports.
Georgia State representatives Carl Gilliard, Anne Allen Westbrook, Ron Stephens, and Edna Jackson wrote a resolution that renames the intersection of State Route 204 at West Montgomery Cross Road in Chatham County to be recognized as the Flau’jae Johnson Intersection.
The resolution states that the recognition is “abundantly fitting and proper” so that Johnson is recognized.
