Congratulations to Lewis Central’s Rachel Cushing, this year’s winner of the Heisman High School Scholarship for the state of Iowa!  This award bestows Heisman prestige to an outstanding senior scholar-athlete from each state.  Each state honoree is awarded a $500 scholarship and the chance to win more as National Finalists or National Winners. 

In order to apply, seniors must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.  In addition, applicants must participate in at least one high school sport.  Finally, qualifying students must be recognized as leaders in their schools and communities.  From thousands of applications, 100 are chosen as state winners.  Through their stories of leadership and impact, the Heisman Trophy Trust hopes to inspire all students to work to advance both their own futures and to better the world around them. 

Through her outstanding academic achievements and her drive on the volleyball court and soccer field, Rachel has demonstrated all of the characteristics of this prestigious award.  Congratulations to Rachel!  Lewis Central is proud to call her one of their own!
