Seniors Brian Schlei and Kira Cerroni are Hamilton High School’s nominees for Wendy’s High School Heisman Program. They were chosen for their academic aptitude, athletic talent and tremendous display of commitment in and out of school.
“These two promising young leaders represent the very best Hamilton has to offer, as both are recognized for their achievements and outstanding levels of commitment to their teachers, classmates and communities,” Hamilton Principal David Furrer said.
The Wendy’s program recognizes high school seniors nationwide who have learned to collaborate and appreciate the interrelation of academics, athletics and community service.
“Brian and Kira have enhanced the quality of life, inspired others and embody the ideal characteristics of today’s leading youth,” Furrer said.
Schlei and Cerroni each will receive a recognition certificate at the Hamilton Senior Awards Banquet in May. State finalists and winners will receive special awards, and 12 students nationwide will win expense-paid trips in December to Heisman weekend festivities and awards banquet in New York City. ESPN will feature national finalists right before the College Heisman Memorial Trophy Awards live telecast.
