DEXTER - Dexter Regional High School is extending a special congratulations to both Jana Kenney and Gavin Cote, who have made it through to the next stage, and have been named School Winners and also State Finalists for the prestigious Wendy's High School Heisman Award. To be eligible for this award, students must have been nominated, display academic aptitude, athletic talent and exceptional commitment to their communities.
The Wendy's High School Heisman program, awarded in conjunction with the collegiate Heisman, celebrates the achievements of the nation's top high school seniors both in and out of the classroom. Just as the collegiate Heisman is known for being the top award in college football, the WHSH award is known for being the most prestigious award at the high school level. The award encourages future leadership by recognizing well-balanced lifestyles at an early age.
"Jana and Gavin are future leaders and will represent their school well in the next phase of judging," said Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the prestigious Heisman Memorial Trophy and Wendy's High School Heisman program spokesperson. "I'm proud to be involved with an award that embodies the spirit of the Heisman tradition of hard work, dedication and an outstanding record both on and off the field."
Athletic Director, Mr. Paul Shaw said "Our applicants have shown throughout their high school careers that they embody the Wendy's High School Heisman lifestyle. This award is the perfect way to celebrate their achievements and showcase the outstanding talent at Dexter Regional High School".
Twelve National Finalists are invited to participate in Heisman weekend festivities during an all-expense paid trip to New York City on December 7th through the 9th. ESPN2 will feature all 12 National Finalists during the Wendy's High School Heisman Awards Ceremony, which airs on December 9th.
