There are some students who set the bar. They work harder, show more passion and lead by example—in the classroom, on the field and within the community. Today, Wendy’s High School Heisman recognizes Wyatt Rongey from Booneville High School and his dedication to never cutting corners by naming him as a Wendy’s High School Heisman Winner.

“This student is known by his teachers and friends for his commitment to excellence. We are excited and honored that a program like Wendy’s High School Heisman is also recognizing his hard work,” said Trent Goff, BHS Principal.

Since 1994, Wendy’s and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been running the same play to perfection: honoring more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed students. This year, Wendy’s will celebrate the accomplishments of thousands of the best high school seniors, awarding winners in five phases.

Both school winners and state finalists have been announced. School winners will receive a School Winner certificate and a Wendy’s High School Heisman Patch. State finalists will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy’s High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 gift card. From the group of state finalists, one senior male and female will be selected from each state and announced as State Winners.

The Arkansas state winner for males was Aaron Ngo, a student from Abundant Life Academy in Sherwood. For more information please visit
