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. These scholars are

this national award by school counselor Pat Cobos.

Yearbook, which is published nationally.

ever before in America's history. Certainly, winners of the
All-American Scholar Awards 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 All-American Scholars upon the exclusive
recommendation by teachers, coaches, counselors, and other
qualified sponsors. Once awarded, the students may be
