Natchez — The United States Achievement Academy announced recently that Clarence D. Hayes from Natchez has been named an All-American Scholar.

The USAA 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.

Hayes, who attends Robert Lewis Middle School, was nominated for this honor by Celeste Kinds. Hayes 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. Certainly, students recognized as All-American Scholars should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement,” said Dr. George Stevens, founder of the United States Achievement Academy.

Hayes is the son of Clarence and Kathy Hayes from Natchez, and the grandson of Bertha Lyles and Robert Lyles of Natchez, Helen Hayes of Natchez and the late Clarence Hayes.
