(High School Senior(s) Nominated for Wendy’s High School Heisman)

Wayne High School’s Dustin Brown and Natasha Bryant have been nominated, by Principal Joselyn Witticker, for their academic aptitude, athletic talent and tremendous display of commitment in and out of the classroom setting. These two promising young leaders represent the very best Wayne High School has to offer, as both are recognized for their achievement and outstanding levels of commitment to their teachers, classmates, and communities.

“These students are truly in a league of their own,” says Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the prestigious Heisman Trophy and program spokesperson. “Each student nominated for the award has gone above and beyond expectations to help those in need, enhance their education and pursue their dreams.”

The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program recognizes high school seniors nationwide who have learned to collaborate and appreciate the interrelation of academics, athletics and community service. Dustin Brown and Natasha Bryant have enhanced the quality of life, inspired others and embody the ideal characteristics of today’s leading youth.

The program, now entering its ninth year, was created through a partnership between Wendy’s, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NAASP) and the Downtown Athletic Club (DAC) – the home of the Heisman Memorial Trophy, in 1994. Dustin Brown is the son of Suzanne Brown and Natasha Bryant is the daughter of Harry and Debbie Bryant.

Monday-MISMATCH DAY – Don’t worry about matching up your outfits that morning! Go ahead and get dressed in the dark, because no one will be matching that day. Just throw anything on and catch the bus.

Tuesday-TWIN DAY – Find a friend, and choose an outfit that will look good on both of you! Come dressed like the twin sister or brother you always wished for, and never got.

Wednesday-HAT DAY – Yes, that’s right. You can wear your favorite hat all day, as long as you pay $1 in the morning at the designated table. (Visors are acceptable, also.) You must pay $1 in order to wear your hat, or you will be asked to remove it.

Thursday-BLUE & GOLD DAY (SPIRIT DAY) – Show your school spirit and come to school wearing blue and gold head-to-toe. For this one day, to show your Warrior pride, you may even color your hair with school colors. (This must be done at home, not at school.) Make sure you come out to Wayne in your best blue and gold that evening to cheer the Warriors on to victory. There will be a prize awarded to the one person in each grade level that shows the most spirit.

Friday-PAJAMA PANTS/SLIPPERS DAY – After Cheering at the volleyball and football games on Thursday night, you are going to be exhausted! So come to school on Friday with your pajama pants and slippers on to rest your tired feet. (Remember, you can only wear pajama pants-this in not a PJ day.) The cheerleaders hope to see you in the stands. Come on out and help them support your Kekionga Warriors.
