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. Today, Wendy’s High School Heisman recognizes Niavanni Flowers from Griffin High School 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 Coach Veronica Lee.

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.

About Wendy’s High School Heisman

The Wendy’s High School Heisman was created by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in 1994.  Dave Thomas dropped 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 footsteps 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 General Equivalency Diploma (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, Wendy’s High School Heisman has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors who share Wendy’s values of giving back to their communities, treating people with respect, continuing education and excelling on the athletic field.

The Wendy’s High School Heisman is a joint program between Wendy’s and the Heisman Trophy Trust, host and custodians of the Heisman Memorial Trophy®.

Griffin High Soccer Recognized for Academic Excellence for Fourth Consecutive Year

 For the fourth year in a row, the Griffin High School Lady Bears soccer team received the United Soccer Coaches High School Team Academic Award.  The Lady Bears were one of only 7 women’s soccer teams recognized out of the 390 GHSA-affiliated teams in Georgia.  “We are very proud of our girls soccer team for again receiving this prestigious academic award,” said Dr. Darrell Evans, principal of Griffin High School, “The girls soccer team is an exemplary representation of what it means to be student-athletes.  Successes like these helped our graduation rate improve to 87%, higher than the state average.  Good job, Lady Bears!”

 

The Lady Bears were recognized with this prestigious award for having an outstanding grade point average during the 2016 spring season.  The 19 members of the varsity team had a combined 3.39 GPA.  Griffin High Athletic Director Dr. Kennedy Holt praised the team’s commitment to success in the classroom, saying the school is “extremely proud of our girls’ academic performance.  In keeping with our school’s theme, ‘Striving Towards Excellence,’  these young ladies have demonstrated that academic achievement at Griffin High School is our student-athletes’ number one goal.”

 

The Lady Bears have also found success on the field recently, finishing in the top half of their region four out of the past five years.  During that five-year stretch, 10 Lady Bears have received college scholarship offers and seven Lady Bears have played collegiately.  “Our girls are leaders.  They are successful on the field and in the classroom,” said Head Coach Bill Stikes, “You’ll find them in leadership positions in school clubs, other sports, and in churches and other community organizations.  Being a Lady Bear means committing to success on the field and in life.”

 

The Lady Bears open their 2018 season with a scrimmage February 1st at Memorial Stadium.
