Arredondo named award recipient

The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Alexa Arredondo from Pecos, has been named a United States National Award Winner in Leadership.

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.

Arredondo, who attends Pecos High School, was nominated for this national award by Eva Arriola, a counselor at the school.

Arredondo, will appear in the United States Achievement Award 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, Executive Director 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 Selectionset 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.

Arredondo is the daughter of Mary C. Arredondo of Pecos.

Grandparents are Antonia C. Arredondo of Pecos, and the late Atilano Arredondo of Pecos.
