STHS Salutes 2008 Wendy’s High School Heisman School Winners

web posted November 24, 2008
JOHNSTON – Strom Thurmond High School is extending special congratulations to Elizabeth Lynn and Tra’ves Bush, (left) who were named School Winners for the prestigious Wendy’s High School Heisman Award. To be eligible for this award, students must display academic aptitude, athletic talent and community leadership.
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.
Created in 1994, the Wendy’s High School Heisman program has celebrated youth excellence for 14 years. The program consists of six stages – applicants, school winners, state finalists, state winners, national finalists and national winners. Entries are initially evaluated by ACT Assessment during the Applicant, State Finalist and State Winner phases and then passed on to a distinguished panel of judges. Known for the ACT college entrance exam, ACT is a non-profit organization offering educational measurement and research services.
Twelve National Finalists are invited to participate in Heisman weekend festivities during an all-expense paid trip to New York City on December 12-14. ESPN2 will feature all 12 National Finalists during the Wendy’s High School Heisman Awards Ceremony, which airs on December 14.
