JHS Seniors Zack Panebianco & Sarah Gibson Chosen as Wendy’s High School Heisman School Winners

Jamestown High School is proud to announce that Zack Panebianco and Sarah Gibson were chosen as the school winners for the 2014 Wendy’s High School Heisman Program. Students are judged based on their academic achievements, athletic accomplishments, community leadership, and involvement in various extracurricular activities during ninth through 11th grade years. Zack has also advanced to the state competition and will compete as a state finalist.

“We are very proud of the accomplishments of Zack and Sarah, both in the classroom and on the athletic fields,” said JHS Principal Mike McElrath. “The time commitment involved in balancing these two endeavors is extensive. Our JHS community wishes them well moving forward.”

Since 1994, the Wendy’s High School Heisman Program has honored more than 395,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors in partnership with the Heisman Memorial Trophy Committee. The leadership award honorees are well-rounded young men and women who excel in learning, performing, and leading in the classroom, on the field and in the community.

Scholarship Management Services® evaluates applicants and determines school winners, state finalists, and state winners. After state winners are selected, the distinguished panel of judges takes over. Program judges include representatives from the worlds of education, business, and sports along with former college Heisman Memorial Trophy Award winners and former national Wendy’s High School Heisman winners. The judges carefully review nomination forms and vote on the National Finalists and National Winners who are announced in December at a ceremony broadcast on ESPN.
