CAMAS, Wash. (KOIN 6) — Nolan Henry will travel to New York City in mid-December. He didn’t know he would until Monday when he was named a finalist for Wendy’s High School Heisman Award.
Henry, a senior at Union High School, is one of 12 national finalist for the 2014 award the honors remarkable students who distinguish themselves in athletics, academics and community service.
“He’s been a three-year starter in football as our quarterback,” said Principal Brian Grimsted. “Academically, he’s a 4.0 student and then he’s done some amazing things through community service.”
“Over the past six years I’ve run the CCYF and youth foundation food drive which is our local youth giveback football program and through that we are now the second largest food drive in Southwest Washington,” Henry said.
He and the other finalists will be in New York where a boy and girl will be chosen to receive a trophy, a $10,000 donation to their high school and a $500 gift card to Wendy’s.
