The United States Achievement Academy announced that Audrey Hannah Hyde from Guyton has been named a United States National Award Winner in three categories, honor roll, leadership and student council.
This award is a prestigious honor very few students can ever hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students.
Hannah, who attends South Effingham High School, was nominated for this national award by Kate Keith and Jessica Huber, counselors at SEHS, and Jana Aylesworth, a teacher at the school. Hannah 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 winners 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 selects USAA winners upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors and other qualified sponsors and upon the standards of selection set for by the Academy.
The criteria for selection are a student’s academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, citizenship, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability and recommendation from a qualified sponsor.
Hannah is the daughter of Edwin and Helen Hyde of Guyton. The grandparents are Sylvia Kazaleh of Jacksonville, Fla. and Audrey Hyde of Calvary.
