The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Wyatt Smith, from Morenci, 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.
Wyatt H. Smith, who attends Morenci Jr/Sr. High School, was nominated for this honor by Ms. Finger. He 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, students recognized as All-American Scholars 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 All-American Scholars upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors and other qualified sponsors.
Wyatt Smith is the son of Gregory and Cecilia Smith of Morenci. His grandparents are Carlos and Cecilia Florez I, and, Charles and Nancy Smith, all of San Manuel.
