Archie Wilson, Jr Continues Pursuit of the National Wendy's High School Heisman in Latest Results.  


A big congratulations goes to Archie Wilson, Jr of Dominion Christian High School in Marietta, GA for being recognized as Georgia's Winner in the Wendy's High School Heisman program.

Created in 1994 by Wendy's and the Heisman Memorial Trust, the Wendy's High School Heisman Program recognizes outstanding high school seniors nationwide who excel in athletics, academics and community leadership. The most exceptional students are then selected to advance during extensive judging processes conducted at both state and national levels.


AJ has been selected as the male representative for the state of Georgia. Each State Winner will receive a silver medal, Heisman patch, and a $50 Wendy's gift card, and will move on to compete against winners from other regions across the country for a chance to be named a National Finalist.

A Big Thank You...

A big thank you to students, staff, and parents for helping to send kids to Christian camps in Africa this December.  


The Jon Whitney Foundation will be sending the money at the end of this week to the camp directors in Ghana, South Africa, Kenya, and Malawi, and to youth pastors in Zambia and Zimbabwe so that they can give camp tuition scholarships to those youth who've applied for assistance.  


Your collective generosity has enabled many kids to experience the gospel, and they, in turn will transform lives in their families and communities. For those who provided a name and address, or email address, tax-receipts are forthcoming. For more information, you can go to, or to the Jon Whitney Foundation facebook page.
