Lance Allen of Campbellsville has been recognized by the United States Achievement Academy as a student of excellence in leadership and science.
The academy recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all American high school students.
Allen, who attends Green County High School, was nominated for the honors by Tammy Thompson, guidance counselor, and Melissa Bright, chemistry teacher, at GCHS. He 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 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.
Allen is the son of Marcia and Jon Allen of Campbellsville. His grandparents are Ronnie and Brenda Allen and Lawrence and Linda Roots.
