The United States Achievement Academy has announced that Briel Cavil from Conroe has been named an All-American Scholar. The USAA has established the All-American Scholar Award Program to offer deserved recognition to superior students who excel in the academic disciplines. The All-American Scholars must earn a 3.3 or higher grade point average. Only scholars selected by a school instructor, counselor or other qualified sponsor are accepted. Briel, who attends Booker T. Washington Junior High, was also named a United States National Award winner in science and English. Her teacher, Ms. Richard nominated her for the English award while Ms. Zond nominated her for the science award. Briel will appear in the All-American Scholar Yearbook, which is published nationally. “Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America’s history,” said Dr. George Stevens, Executive Director of the United States Achievement Academy. “Certainly, United States Achievement Academy winners should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement.” The Academy selects All-American Scholars upon the exclusive recommendation of teachers, coaches, counselors and other qualified sponsors. Once awarded, the students may be recognized by the USAA for other honors. Briel is the daughter of Chevosky and Sandra Cavil of Conroe. Her grandparents are Fred and Betty Henry of Conroe and Jesse and Leona Hurst of Lampasas. She is also the granddaughter of Hollis Miller and the great-granddaughter of Mineola Sanders, both of Brady.
