Grace Tunis Wendys Heisman Award

BERLIN- Worcester Prep standout Grace Tunis has been named a Maryland finalist in the 2015 National Wendy’s High School Heisman Program.

Each year, Wendy’s recognizes senior student-athletes from each state celebrating their achievements both in and out of the classroom with its High School Heisman Trophy Awards. Just as the collegiate Heisman is known for being the highest award in college football, Wendy’s Heisman Award is recognized as the most esteemed award at the high school level.

The prestigious national award program selects the best student-athletes who exemplify the Heisman ideals. Tunis, a Worcester Prep senior, was chosen as a 2015 state finalist for her outstanding accomplishments in her nearly four years at Worcester. Tunis plays varsity soccer, varsity basketball and varsity lacrosse, and was named a U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American after her junior year.

Off the playing fields and courts, Tunis was voted Worcester Prep’s Best All-Around in grades nine through 11, is a National Merit Scholarship Commended Student, National Honor Society, Cum Laude Society and Spanish National Honor Society. She has earned the George Washington University School of Engineering, Mathematics and Applied Science Medal.

In addition, Tunis is a chorus and ensemble member at WPS, serves as editor-in-chief of the yearbook and co-president of Worcester Volunteers. She has served as class secretary in grades 10-12, and was the class treasurer as a freshman in grade nine.

Each state finalist will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy’s High School Heisman State Finalist patch, and a $25 Wendy’s gift card. The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program has recognized exceptional student-athletes for more than two decades. The program continues to provide a platform where students are acknowledged and rewarded for their hard work and also inspired to continue their success.
