A Grand County High School student has been named an All-American Scholar by the United States Achievement Academy. Dylan Valerio of Moab was recently notified that he has received the recognition, which is given to “superior students who excel in the academic disciplines,” according to a notification letter sent to Valerio.

The award is given to students who earn a 3.3 or higher grade point average and are nominated by a teacher, counselor or other qualified sponsor, according to the letter.

Valerio will be listed in the All-American Scholar Yearbook, a national publication.

Valerio is the son of Angel and Jarrod Davis and Jared Valerio and the grandson of Floyd and Lupe Alvey and the late Patsy Valerio of Moab.
