The United States Achievement Academy announced recently that D.J. Walker from Cottonwood, Idaho has been recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as a student of excellence in English.
This is a prestigious honor very few students can hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10% or of all American high school students.
D.J., who attends Prairie High School, was nominated for this honor by Sarah Remacle, a teacher at the school. D.J. will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s Official Yearbook which is published nationally.
“Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America’s history. Certainly, United States Achievement Academy students should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement,” said Dr. George Stevens, Founder of the United States Achievement Academy.
The Academy recognized students upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors, and other qualified sponsors and upon the Standards for Selection set forth by the Academy. The Standards for Selection include academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability, and recommendation from a qualified sponsor.
D.J. is the son of Keith and Sharmon Becker from Cottonwood, ID. The grandparents are Dennis and Sandy Walker of Cottonwood, and Marilyn Becker of Cottonwood.
