The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program named senior Meredith Reinhardt of Notre Dame Preparatory in Scottsdale as one of the best student-athletes in the state of Arizona for exemplifying the Heisman ideals.

Each state finalist will continue on to the next round of the Wendy’s High School Heisman Program, where only one male and one female student from each state will be declared state winners.

Ms. Reinhardt, 18, was selected as a 2015 state finalists for her success on the soccer field and in the classroom, according to a press release.

As a 12-year veteran of soccer, Ms. Reinhardt is the goalkeeper for the NDP Saints and a team captain. She says her favorite soccer moment was “winning the state championship last year with my team,” the release stated.

The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program has recognized exceptional student athletes for more than two decades. The program provides a platform where students are acknowledged and rewarded for their hard work and also inspired to continue their success.

In addition to being named Most Valuable Player for the Notre Dame Prep varsity soccer team last year, Ms. Reinhardt was All State 2nd team her sophomore year, All State 1st team her junior year, and Southern Section 1st team for the past three years.

Ms. Reinhardt works equally hard on academics. She has made the school’s Principal’s List (4.0 or higher GPA) her freshman through junior years and is a National Honor Society inductee, the release stated.
