The most obvi- ous benefit of a college educa- tion is the monetary benefits.

Other Arndt receives honors The United States Achivement Academy announced that Shayna Marie Arndt from Cuba, Missouri, has been named to a United States National Award Winner in Honor Roll. This award is a prestigious honor very few students can ever hope to attain. In fact, the Academy recognizes fewer than 10% of all American High School students. Arndt's name will appear in the United States Achievement Academy Official Yearbook, which is published nationally. Arndt was also named an All-American Scholar by the United States Achievement Academy. The USAA has established the All-American Scholar Award Program to offer deserved recognition to superi- or students who excell 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, coun- selor, or other qualified sponsor are accepted. These scholars are also eligible for other awards given by the USAA. Arndt's name will appear in the All-American Scholar Yearbook, which is published nationally. Arndt, who attends Crawford County R-II School was nomintated for both SHAYNA ARNDT awards by Terri Carty. "Recognizing and supporting our youth is more important than ever before in America's history. Certainly, winners of the the All-American Scholar Award and the United States Achievement Academy should be congratulated and appreci- ated for the dedication to excel- lence and achievement," said Dr. George Stevens, Executive Director of the United States Achievement Academy. Arndt is the daughter of John and Delilah Osborn of Cuba. Her grandparents are Dan and Lona Goins of Houston, Texas, John and Sharon Redmond of Kewanee, Illinois and Rosa Arndt of Hillsboro, Missouri. " C A great !dea!
