Heisman High School Scholarship Award

On November 2, The Heisman Trophy Trust announced the 2022 School Winners

for the Heisman High School Scholarship. From an applicant pool of thousands of high school scholar-athletes graduating with the class of 2023, more than 5,700 have been named School Winners in the Heisman High School Scholarship competition awarded by The Heisman Trophy Trust.


Wellington High School student Jensen Lynnes (senior) was selected as a high school winner for the Heisman High School Scholarship this year. Jensen will receive her framed certificate at the winter sports banquet. Rane Case, CTE Business teacher, added “Jensen needed a school employee to review her application and she just chose me because she has been a part of BPA her entire high school career. In addition, Jensen has been a national qualifier in BPA for three years running and will participate in her final state competition in February 2023 which will determine her eligibility for national competition in April 2023.  Her application was impressive!”


The Heisman Memorial Trophy is annually awarded to the most outstanding
