Greenwood award winner
The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Amanda Leigh Bowman from Greenwood, has been named a United States National Award Winner in English. 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.
Amanda, who attends Sussex Technical High School, was nominated for this national award by Mrs. Whaley, a teacher at the school.
Amanda will appear in the United States Achievement Academy Official Yearbook, which is published nationally.
"Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in American's history. Certainly, Untied States Achievement Academy winner should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement," said Dr. George Stevens, executive director of the Untied 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 forth 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 teacher or director.
Amanda is the daughter of Bruce and Rita Bowman from Greenwood. Her grandparents are William and Janie Bowman of Greenwood.
