Burttschells nominated for academic awards

Angela Burttschell, along with her brother, Jimmy Burttschell, were recently honored with national outstanding college and high school awards. Angela was recognized in The National Dean’s List for 1999-2000 that honors America’s outstanding college students. When selected for the award, each student named to the Dean’s List is automatically eligible to compete for a $1,000 scholarship from the $50,000 awarded annually. The National Dean’s List is the largest, most prestigious publication in the country recognizing gifted students selected by their deans, comparable faculty members of other educational organizations. Jimmy was recommended for a multiple year award in Who’s Who Among American High School Students for 1999-2000. Students nominated for Who’s Who are eligible to apply for a $1,000 scholarship from the $200,000 awarded each year. Since 1967, Who’s Who has been the most respected publication in the nation recognizing high school students for their achievements. Who’s Who received the National Education Award from the American Legion in 1998, was the winner of The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics from The Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois in 1999 and is the only student recognition program favorably reviewed by the American Library Association. Approximately 20,000 schools are represented by their outstanding students. Only one-half of one-percent of all high school students are honored for two or more years.
