The United States Achievement Academy
The United States Achievement Academy announced recently that Mackenzie Baswell of Cullman has been recognized by the Academy as a student of excellence in science. 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.
Mackenzie attends West Point and is the daughter of Chris Baswell and Scott and Marcie Clay of Cullman. Her grandparents are Bill and Betty Baswell of Cullman and Shirley and Janette Witcher of Cullman.
