The United States Achievement Academy has announced that Alison B. Baldridge of Amherstdale has been recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as a student of excellence in Honor Roll. 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.
Baldridge, who attends Man High School, was nominated for this honor by Mrs. Manning, principal, at the school. Baldridge 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 recommendation 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.
Baldridge is the daughter of Bobby and Stephanie Baldridge of Amherstdale and granddaughter of Bobby and Karen Baldridge of Proctorville, Ohio, Ernestine Toler of Amherstdale and the late Normal Toler.
