The Wendy's High School Heisman recognizes high character student-athletes who have displayed excellence and integrity both on and off the field.  For Gabriella and Declan, taking the easy way out or cutting corners isn't an option and Wendy's is proud to honor their dedication.  

As a State Finalist, Declan will receive a bronze Heisman medal, a State Finalist patch, and a $25 Wendy's gift card.  Gabriella's prestigious State Winner title awards her a $1,000 college scholarship and a silver Heisman medal.  From the group of State Winners, 10 National Finalists will be selected and those names will be announced November 2, 2017.  Their scholarship will increase to $5,000 and will receive a gold medal and a Wendy's High School Heisman National Finalist Heisman patch. In addition, they’ll be invited to the Wendy’s High School Heisman Weekend, including the National Awards Banquet in New York City on December 8. During the banquet, one female and male winner will be honored as National Winners of the Wendy’s High School Heisman and their scholarship will increase to $10,000. 

Like the Heisman Memorial Trophy®, Wendy’s believes in the pursuit of athletic and academic excellence with integrity. 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. Our partnership succeeds because we share a common set of values wherein going above and beyond is the norm. We want to honor students who do the same and profile their stories of perseverance as a way to inspire the tomorrow’s senior class.

Class of 2020 Volunteers at Food Pantry

posted Oct 20, 2017, 7:40 AM by Central Webmaster

The officers and members of CHS class of 2020 volunteered their time at the Thursday night food pantry at New Horizons on October 19.  

These young adults have made service to others a priority in the work they do.  Last year they organized the hat, mitten, and book drive for the 2nd graders at Wilson Elementary.  This year they have made a commitment to work one night per month at New Horizons, a food pantry that services Manchester residents in need.  

During their first night of service in September, only the officers went but on the second night of service, the officers brought along other members from the class of 2020.  For the next night of service, November 16, even more members of the class of 2020 will join the effort to serve others in the larger community.

Another representation of Central Pride in action.
