Achievement All-Stars Issue Date: 01-04-1998

Cool Spots imageAt the Academy of Achievement homepage, you'll get to meet the masterminds who have shaped the world we live in. Follow the road to glory and stop in at www.achievement.org where you'll mingle with the likes of George Washington, Thomas Edison and Amelia Earhart. These legendary achievers have fascinated the public, changed our societies, and made an impact on our everyday lives. This is no museum of relics, though. Writer John Grisham, musician Johnny Cash and filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola are also featured prominently. Once you've finished touring the Gallery of Achievers, it'll be time to kick back and watch highlights from Achievement TV, the interactive television network beamed into classrooms nationwide. For bookworms, the museum's library contains a reader's bulletin board, a virtual book club, and a link to the Library of Congress. Plus, you'll love the toys and treats commemorating your visit at the Gift Shop. The Academy of Achievement is a hall of fame that can't be missed.
