Bath, ME (November 22, 2021) - Earlier this month, School Winners of the Heisman High School Scholarship Competition were identified by the Heisman Trophy Trust and Acceptance Insurance. From an applicant pool of thousands of high school scholar-athletes graduating with the class of 2022, more than 5,700 have been named School Winners, including Wren Tetreault of Morse High School.
To apply, students must be graduating with the class of 2022, have a cumulative weighted high school grade point average of a B (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.
Tetreault, who plays soccer and lacrosse, said sports have been an important way for her to unwind after a school day. “It actually helps me stay on top of my schoolwork because I have a lot of structure,” she said. “Since I don’t have a lot of free time, I have to get assignments done as soon as I get home from soccer. I keep a Google sheet with all of my homework, tests and quizzes for the week, ranked by importance from 1-10.”
She also values athletics as a way to meet students she wouldn’t interact with normally; younger students who she doesn’t have classes with. “I also really enjoy being a leader and feeling like I can support my team.”
School Winners continue on for the chance to become State Winners, National Finalists, or National Winners. 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.
After graduation, Tetreault plans on attending either the University of Vermont or American University. In either case, the skills and knowledge she has learned both on and off the field at Morse will serve her well!
