Student of excellence

The United States Achievement Academy announced that Megan Beck of Peachtree City, has been recognized as a student of excellence. This is a prestigious honor very few students can hope to attain.  In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10% of all American students. Beck, who attends Rising Starr Middle School, was nominated by Laura Benefield (L), a teacher at the school.  Megan Beck will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s Official Yearbook which is published nationally. Beck is the daughter of Richard and Kelli Beck from Peachtree City.  Photo/Special.
