Since 1994, 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.”

This year, Wendy’s High School Heisman recognized one local student-athlete, Pekin’s 5’8” senior volleyball/basketball player Maci Gambell.

The committee said she was recognized as a school winner for “her dedication to never cutting corners.”

“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 Pekin’s Tim Hadley.

School Winners received a School Winner certificate and a Wendy’s High School Heisman Patch. Iowa’s State Finalists were Andrew Blum of Glenwood High School and Makenzie Cunard from Logan-Magnolia High.
