Senior Nina Cialone has been named a school-level Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship winner. This distinction is based upon her success in academics and athletics and her participation in community service.
Nina was named a National Merit semifinalist earlier this fall and is a member of the National Honor Society, Foreign Language Honor Society, Book Club, Model UN, Peer Leaders and the Jesters, where she performs and works as part of the crew. She is captain of the cross-country team and has set multiple school records in track. Outside of school, Nina uses her athletic ability to assist the coach of a local CYO track team and enjoys taking voice lessons.
High school counselor Faith Keenan nominated Nina for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship, saying she is a true gem and an outstanding student and scholar athlete.
“Nina continually pushes herself to achieve her personal best,” Ms. Keenan said. “The higher the bar, the harder she works. A natural leader, Nina inspires her teammates to do their best and serves as a positive role model for her peers.”
The Heisman High School Scholarship program said it 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.
Although school-level winners do not receive scholarships, earning the distinction is an honor and recognition of a student’s unique achievements.
Congratulations to Nina on being recognized as an exceptional high school student!
