Simpson recognized for academics

The United States Achievement Academy has recognized Amber Simpson from Moreland, GA, for academic achievement as a United States National Honor Student Award Winner.

Simpson, who attends Smokey Road Middle School, will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s 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, founder of the United States Achievement Academy.

The USAA National Honor Students Awards provide honor students with many benefits and services and is a great tribute to a student’s dedication, talent, and ability.

Amber Simpson is the daughter of Steven and Pebbles Simpson of Moreland, GA. The grandparents are Jean and Paul Goode of Austell, GA, and Steve and Pam Simpson of Luthersville, GA and Tommy Boyd of Moreland, GA.
