The United States Achievement Academy has announced that Logan E. Page of Sparta has been named a United States National Award winner in mathematics.

These awards are 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.

Page, who attends Pleasant Hill Elementary School, was nominated for these national awards by Susan Stewart, a teacher at the school.

He 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 sponsors 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 qualified sponsor.

Page is the son of Donald and Seleta Page of Sparta. His grandparents are Malcolm and Sandra Page and Steve and Joann Wightman, all of Sparta.
