Purdy High School recently announced Macey Breeding was named school winner for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award.
Breeding was chosen for her excellence in academics, athletics and community leadership.
"On behalf of Purdy High School, I celebrate and honor Macey's outstanding athletic and scholastic achievements and congratulate her on the receipt of this prestigious award." said Jamie Temple, Purdy High School counselor.
Breeding will advance to the next round of judging to compete for the coveted national award.

The Wendy's High School Heisman Award celebrates the achievements of the nation's top high school seniors both in and out of the classroom.
Just as the collegiate Heisman is known for being the highest award in college football, the Wendy's High School Heisman Award is recognized as the most esteemed award at the high school level, as it encourages future leadership by acknowledging well-rounded students.
"The nationally recognized Wendy's High School Heisman Award helps these high-achieving students to stand out in the increasingly selective college admissions process," said Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the Heisman Memorial Trophy and Wendy's High School Heisman program spokesperson. "These outstanding seniors across the country can use this award as a stepping stone toward continuing success and high achievements."
