BRUNSWICK ACADEMY SENIOR LEAVES IT ALL ON THE COURT AND BECOMES A WINNER IN WENDY’S HIGH SCHOOL HEISMAN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

There are some students who set the bar.  They work harder, show more passion and lead by example – in the classroom, on the court and within the community.  Wendy’s High School Heisman recently recognized Brunswick Academy senior, Heather Dianne Thompson of Emporia for her dedication to never cutting corners by naming her a winner in the scholarship program. 

Since 1994, Wendy’s and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been running the same play to perfection; honoring more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed students.  This year, Wendy’s will celebrate the accomplishments of thousands of the best high school seniors. 

The Wendy’s High School Heisman was created by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas in 1994.  Dave Thomas dropped out of high school when he was 15 years old in order to work full-time and went on to become one of the most successful entrepreneurs in history.  While this nontraditional path led to his prosperity, it always worried Dave that others would follow in his footsteps and expect to achieve similar fame and wealth by not finishing high school or attending college. 

Faced with this dilemma, at 61 years old, Dave enrolled at Coconut Creek High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and received his GED.  Inspired by this moment and with a desire to celebrate the outstanding achievements of youth in America, he launched the Wendy’s High School Heisman program.

Heather Thompson is the daughter of Chris and Kristine Thompson of Emporia.  She has played JJV, JV and Varsity Basketball, JV and Varsity Volleyball, Varsity Soccer and JV softball while at Brunswick Academy.  She is a member of the National Honor Society, Jr. Beta Club, Student Council Organization, Honor Council and BA Latin Club.  She has been an active member of the BA Theatre program with many leading roles.  Heather has also participated in the Model General Assembly program and received the College of William and Mary Leadership award.  Congratulations Heather.

Jerry "Trey" Mitchell, III.  is the son of Jerry Mitchell, Jr. and Paula Anderson of Emporia Virginia.

Trey's Essay is included below:

If I Were Mayor

A mayor has a very important job. If I were mayor, I would take my job seriously. As a community leader, I would oversee all aspects of our city to ensure prosperity and growth. Maintaining a balanced budget will be a top priority. I will make sure that our city spends money wisely and increase our revenue by promoting industry. I will manage our police department, fire department, as well as our transportation and housing departments. I will also make education a priority. I will participate in the events of our city to be an involved leader. I will foster a sense of mutual respect by maintaining open communication with city council members as well as members of the community.

Upon being elected a mayor, I will conduct a meeting of all department heads to determine the strengths and weakness of our municipality. At this meeting, we will determine the required amount of manpower to make the departments run smoothly and continue to be productive. At our city council meeting, we will establish and prioritize our goals that will make our town a great place to live. I will meet with the members of our community to determine the concerns of our citizens. I will  determine our budget, address economic issues, and allocate funding to meet the needs of our city, including funding for city maintenance.  I will also promote the creation of jobs and industry for economical growth.

To ensure the safety of our citizens and our community, I plan to meet with essential persons in the police and fire departments. We will discuss the staffing needs and requirements, as well as equipment needs of each department. Maintaining adequate staff and ensuring proper equipment will assist in keeping the citizens of our town safe. I will encourage active involvement in community awareness activities and programs by public service employees. I will ask that they become more personally involved in our community to foster good relationships, and as a result, make our town safer.

The survival of our town is dependent upon maintaining economic growth and development. I will make this a top priority. I will promote our town to help persuade businesses to choose our town and help current business expand. The types of businesses that I will try to bring to our town include:  restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, bowling alleys and amusement parks. When these businesses choose our town, all parties involved are winners. Our economy is perked, jobs are created, the housing industry will boom, and more people will choose our town. The result will be a cycle of increased growth, increased population and increased revenue.

If I were mayor, every citizen in our community would be my priority. Protecting our community, encouraging growth of our town, ensuring excellent education programs for our youth and prosperity and growth of our city are issues that will take precedence. Great times are ahead for our town!
