SHARON - The United States Achievement Academy announced this week that D'Marius Luckett has been named an All-American Scholar for 2014.

Luckett, who attends Velma Jackson High School, was nominated by Cedrick Wilder. He'll appear in the All-American Scholar Yearbook, which is published nationally.

The USAA has 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.

"Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America's history," USAA founder George Stevens said. "Certainly, students recognized as All-American Scholars should be congratulated and appreciated for their dedication to excellence and achievement."

Luckett is the son of Kimberly Luckett and Maurice Thompson and the grandson of Shirley and Walter Luckett and Johnnie and Hosie Thompson of Canton.
