This is a prestigious honor very few students can hope to attain.
In fact, the academy recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students.
Miss Erwin, who attends Martin Middle School, was nominated for this honor by Angela Farlow, a science teacher at her school. Miss Erwin 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 recognizes students upon the exclusive recommendations 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.
Miss Erwin is the daughter of John and Teresa Erwin of Sharon. Her grandparents are the late B.F. and Justine Erwin and the late Fred and Nancy Shannon, all of Sharon.
