United States Achievement Academy

The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Raeleigh Bottoms from Eureka has been recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as an All-American Scholar, and has been awarded a scholarship.

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

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.

Raeleigh is the daughter of Sherrie Bottoms and Jason Bottoms, both of Eureka. Her grandparents are Don and Edna Jock of Eureka and Lynn and Karen Bottoms of Navarro.
