Star City, Arkansas (October 18, 2017) – There are some students who set the bar. They work harder, show more passion and lead by example—in the classroom, on the field/court and within the community. Today, Wendy’s High School Heisman recognizes Taylor Owen and Jax Gasaway from Star City High and their dedication to never cutting corners by naming them School Winners.
“These students are known by their teachers and friends for their commitment to excellence. We are excited and honored that a program like Wendy’s High School Heisman is also recognizing their hard work,” said Amanda Johnson, Star City High Counselor.
Since 1994, Wendy’s and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been running the same play to perfection: honoring more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed students. This year, Wendy’s will celebrate the accomplishments of thousands of the best high school seniors, awarding winners in five phases.
School Winners will receive a School Winner certificate and a Wendy’s High School Heisman Patch. State Finalists will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy’s High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 gift card. From the group of State Finalists announced October 18, 2017, one senior male and female will be selected from each state and announced as State Winners on October 19, 2017.
