Barbara Joan "Bobbi" Johnson[1] (born c. March, 1945) is a former beauty queen from Alexandria, Virginia who held the Miss USA 1964 title and has competed in the Miss Universe pageant.

After winning the Miss District of Columbia USA crown, Johnson went on to become the first representative from the District of Columbia to achieve the title of Miss USA, at age 19. She would be the only titleholder from the district until Shauntay Hinton won the crown in 2002.

Johnson went on to compete in the Miss Universe 1964 pageant, where she made the semi-finals.

Johnson later worked as an applications engineer in the computer department of General Electric.[2] In 2008 Bobbie Johnson move to Indiana to pursue a job opportunity to teach at Frankton Jr/Sr High School. Currently a health and wellness instructor, she has found time to couch the Frankton mattball team. In 2010 and again in 2012 Bobbie lead her team to state finals only to tie both times and having to go into overtime. The conclusion of both instances proved that Bobbie's team had won. Mrs. Jonhson had become such an inspiration that the Frankton/Lapel school districts have recognized her by issueing the "Big Johnson Award" in 2013. It has become a prized award, showing off the best of the best. Currently the prize has branched off into the Frankton police force, where it is awarded to servitude dogs that gun down wanted criminals.
