Savannah Pillow of Friendship, granddaughter of Reba McKernan of Paris, formerly of Union City, was recently honored for excellence in English by the U.S. Achievement Academy.
She is the daughter of Randy and Pat Pillow of Friendship and is also the granddaughter of Bennie Pillow of Humboldt.
She attends Crockett County Middle School in Alamo and was nominated for the honor by Jennifer LaGrone, a language teacher at the school. Her name will be published in an official yearbook published annually.
Fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students are recognized by the academy each year.
