JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville woman was surprised Tuesday with a big honor by a national company. It's all part of the "Give It Up For Good" campaign, an initiative that urges people to share the good in their community by recognizing and highlighting the unsung heroes who dedicate themselves to enriching the lives of others.

Schanna Speight-Johnson earned the honor of Champion For Good from Allstate Insurance Company. The company surprised her with the title at the Pace Center for Girls where she works as a social studies teacher. Speight-Johnson is known for her countless acts of community service and commitment to giving back through her work with the Why Not Me Campaign, a nonprofit organization with a mission to help children and teens reach their potential by fostering self-esteem, personal growth and dedication to their dreams.

As part of the honor, Schanna and her family will attend the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion in Orlando scheduled for later in the week.
