The United States Achievement Academy announced that Rachel Duzan from Memphis, MO has been recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as a student of excellence in Mathematics.

This is a prestigious honor very few students can hope to attain.  In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10% of all American high school students.

Rachel Duzan, who attends Scotland County, was nominated for this honor by Ms. Getman, a high school math teacher at the school.  Rachel 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.

Rachel Duzan is the daughter of Michael Duzan and Curtis and Marie Ebeling from Memphis, MO. The grandparents are Fred and Janet Tinning of Lansing, MI, Keith and Gail Weddell of Yale, IL, Bob Duzan of Marshall, IL, Duane and Sandra Ebeling of Wyaconda, MO and Tom and Jean Myers of Memphis, MO.
