Leyva selected as academy winner

Sinjin A. Leyva has been named a National Award Winner in history and government by the United States Achievement Academy.

Leyva, a Carlsbad High School student, was nominated for the honor by Donna A. Gonzalez, a history teacher at CHS.

His name will appear in the United States Achievement Academy Official Yearbook, which is published nationally.

The award is presented to fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students.

The academy selects USAA winners upon the recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors and other qualified sponsors and upon the Standards of Selection set for by the Academy.

Criteria for selection include a student's academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibilities, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, citizenship, attitude and cooperative spirit, dependability and recommendation from a teacher or director.

Leyva is the son of Henry and Frances Leyva of Carlsbad and grandson of Sulema Leyva of Odessa and the late Enrique Leyva and Felis Gonzales of Pecos and the late Petra Gonzales.
