Sonnen are High School Heisman nominees
Prairie High School’s Kelby Wilson and Vanessa Sonnen have been nominated for the coveted Wendy’s High School Heisman Award. Awarded in conjunction with the collegiate Heisman recognition, this award honors the nation’s top high school seniors who best exemplify a supreme “citizen-scholar-athlete.”
Celebrating more than 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 Trophy in 1994.
Vanessa and Kelby were nominated for this program based on the following accomplishments: GPA, Civic Involvement, Sports, Awards, Clubs, and Positions held.
“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.”
