Bulen And Eggleston Nominated For Wendy’s High School Heisman Award
Scotland County High School’s Andrew Bulen and Sara Eggleston have been nominated for the coveted Wendy’s High School Heisman Award. Similar to the collegiate Heisman recognition, this award honors the nation’s top high school seniors who are leaders in academics, athletics and community service. In order to be eligible, students must have at least a “B” grade average, participate in at least one of the 32 sports officially sanctioned by the National Federation of High Schools and be active in their community.
Now celebrating 10 years of commitment to youth and education, this program was created through a partnership between Wendy’s, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and the Heisman Memorial Trust, in 1994. Principals from approximately 24,000 high schools across the country were invited to nominate one male and one female student who fulfilled the program requirements.
“These students are truly in a league of their own,” says Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the prestigious Heisman Memorial trophy and program spokesperson. “Each student nominated for the award has gone above and beyond expectations to help those in need, enhance their education and pursue their dreams.”
The two national winners will be announced in conjunction with the collegiate Heisman trophy presentation in December and will receive $2,500 for their high schools. For more information on the Heisman award, visit www.wendyshighschoolheisman.com.
