The United States Achievement Academy announced today that Jessica Hansen of Norwalk has been named a Collegiate All-American Scholar.
The USAA has established the Collegiate All-American Scholar Award Program to offer deserved recognition to superior students who excel in the academic disciplines. The Collegiate All-American Scholars must earn a 3.3 or higher grade point average. Only scholars selected by a school official or other qualified sponsor are accepted. This award is a prestigious honor very few students can ever hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10 percent of all college students.
Jessica, who attends Otterbein College, was nominated for this national award by Dr. Debra Halbert.
She will appear in the Collegiate All-American Yearbook which is published nationally.
Jessica is the daughter of George E. Hansen of Norwalk. The grandparents are George R. and Rosemary Hansen of Norwalk.
