Staff Reports Madison County Record
The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Discovery Middle School seventh grader Justin Sheffield has been named an All-American Scholar. The USAA has established the All-American Scholar Award Program to offer deserved recognition to superior students who excel in the academic disciplines. The All-American Scholars must earn a 3.3, or higher, grade point average. Only scholars selected by a school instructor, counselor, or other qualified sponsor are accepted. These scholars are also eligible for other awards given by the USAA.
Sheffield was nominated for this national award by Cathy Sperr.
Sheffield will appear in the All-American Scholar Yearbook, which is published nationally.
"Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America's history. Certainly, winners of the All-American Scholar Awards should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement," said Dr. George Stevens, Executive Director of the United States Achievement Academy.
The Academy selects All-American Scholars upon the exclusive recommendation by teachers, coaches, counselors, and other qualified sponsors. Once awarded, the students may be recognized by the USAA for other honors.
Sheffield is the son of Chris and Lisa Sheffield of Madison. He is the grandson of Phil and Marie Simon and John and Jean Sheffield, all of Jacksonville, Fla.
