High School Heisman program honors Madison Blackstone There are some students who set the bar. They work harder, show more passion and lead by example ~ in the classroom, on the field and within the community. Wendy's High School Heisman recognizes Madison Blackstone from Superior High School and her dedication to never cutting comers by naming her a school win- ner. Since 1994, Wendy's and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been run- ning the same play to perfection: hon- oring more than 600,000 of the nation's most esteemed students. This year, Wendy' s will eelehrate the accomplish- ments of thousands of the best high school seniors, awarding winners in five phases. School winners will receive a cer- tificate and a Wendy's High School Heisman Patch. State finalists will re- ceive a bronze medal, a Wen@' s High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 gift card. From the group of State finalists announced Oct. ! 8, one senior male and female will be .se- lected from each state and announced as state winners on Oct. i 9. The Wendy's High School Heisman was created hy Wendy's founder Dave Thomas in 1994. Dave Thomas drop- ped out of high school when he was 15 years old in order to work full-time and went on to become one of the most successful entrepreneurs in history. While this nontraditional path led to his prosperity, it always worried Dave that others would follow in his foot- steps and expect to achieve similar fame and wealth by not finishing high school or attending college. Faced with this dilemma, at 61 years old, Dave enrolled at Coconut Creek High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla and received his GED. Inspired by this moment and with a desire to celebrate the outstanding achievements of youth in America, he launched the Wendy's High School Heisman program. Twenty-two years later, Weedy' s High School Heisman has honored more than 600,000 of the nation's most esteemed seniors who share Wendy's values of giving back to their communities, treat- ing people with respect, continuing education and excelling on the athletic field.
