Elk a national finalist for Heisman scholarship

Elkhorn Area High School Athletic Director Dan Kiel congratulates senior Devon Davey for being named a national finalist in the Heisman Trophy Trust scholarship competition. The two winners will be announced Dec. 4 and each will receive a $5,000 scholarship and a trip to New York for the trophy ceremony and dinner gala.

From an applicant pool of thousands of high school scholar-athletes graduating with the class of 2020, 12 students – including Elkhorn’s Devon Davey – have been named National Finalists in the Heisman Trophy Trust scholarship competition.

The Heisman High School Scholarship continues the legacy of the Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship, a program created in 1994 by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in partnership with The Heisman Trophy Trust.

From its inception, the program has leveraged the reputation of the Heisman Memorial Trophy as a symbol of great ability combined with diligence, perseverance, and hard work.

Over the past 25 years, the program has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors and provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in college scholarships to students and more than a million dollars to high school academic and athletic programs across the country.

The Heisman High School Scholarship program honors the nation’s most accomplished, community-minded high school senior athletes. By inviting students from schools across the country to share their stories of leadership and impact, the program aims to inspire all students to harness their potential, push their limits, and use their talents not only to advance their own futures, but to improve the communities and world around them.

The 2019 National Finalists will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and compete for the chance to be named the 2019 male and female National Winners. National Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Dec. 4 online at heismanscholarship.com/.

The two National Winners will each receive a $5,000 college scholarship and a trip to New York City to attend the 2019 Heisman Trophy Weekend events including the televised ESPN Heisman Trophy ceremony and 85th annual Heisman Dinner Gala.

Davey participates in soccer, track and field, and basketball at Elkhorn Area High School.
