Pena named award winner

The United States Achievement Academy announced that D'Andra Pena from Pecos has been named a United States National Award Winner in cheerleading.

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.

Pena, who attends Crockett Middle School, was nominated for this national award by teacher Kim Calhoun at the school.

Pena will appear in the United States Achievement Academy 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 sponors and upon the Standards of Selection set 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.

Pena is the daughter of Lydia and Daniel Pena of Barstow. The grandparents are Emilio and Pauline Pena of Wickett and Jose and Frances Castillo of Pecos.
