This week, The Heisman Trophy Trust and Acceptance Insurance announced the 2021 School Winners for the Heisman High School Scholarship.
From an applicant pool of thousands of high school scholar-athletes graduating with the class of 2022, Mary Wilson Reyner ’22 was named the Christ Church Episcopal School winner of the national award.
The Heisman High School Scholarship extends the Heisman prestige to the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors by celebrating and rewarding outstanding male and female scholar-athletes who understand that the most important victories happen not only on the field, but also in their schools and communities. To apply, graduating students must have a cumulative weighted high school grade point average of a 3.0 or better, participate in at least one of the sports recognized by the International Olympic Committee, the Paralympic Games and/or the National Federation of State High School Association and be a leader in his/her school and community.
Mary Wilson will continue on for the chance to become a State Winner, National Finalist or National Winner. State Winners receive a $1,000 college scholarship, National Finalists receive a $2,000 college scholarship and the male and female National Winners will each receive a $10,000 college scholarship.
Over the past 27 years, the program has honored more than 600,000 of the nation’s most accomplished, community-minded high school senior athletes and provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in college scholarships. By inviting male and female 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.
Congratulations, Mary Wilson on this well-deserved honor!
