Local Students Honored with Wendy's Heisman

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 four Cheatham County students – Madison Tolle and Justin Anderson from Harpeth High School, Cassidy Cox from Cheatham County Central High School and Kyle Spurlock from Sycamore 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 Director of Schools Dr. Cathy Beck.

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.

The Wendy's High School Heisman was created by Wendy's founder Dave Thomas in 1994.

Over the past 23 years, 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.
