DHS Student Named Heisman High School Scholarship Recipient
Easton Carleton, a senior from Dysart High School, was named a recipient for the Heisman High School Scholarship.
The Heisman High School Scholarship honors the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors by recognizing and rewarding outstanding scholar-athletes who understand that the most important victories not only happen on the field, but in their schools and communities. These remarkable young leaders set an example and make a game-changing difference every day, paving the way to greatness for everyone around them.
Easton is a multi-sport athlete who participates in Varsity Basketball, Varsity Baseball, and the Best Buddies program at Dysart High School. The Best Buddies program operates as a student-run friendship club, which creates buddy pairs between students with and without disabilities. Best Buddies helps to create an inclusive school climate for students and a community culture of acceptance. Additionally, Easton participates in the AVID program at Dysart High School and attends the Physical Therapy program at West-Mec. He’s been accepted to many schools around the country but is currently looking to attend Houghton University in New York to pursue an Exercise Science or Physical Therapy degree, and continue his athletic career and play baseball.
More than 4,878 students have earned the honor of becoming School Winners in the Heisman High School Scholarship competition awarded by The Heisman Trophy Trust. One hundred of these School Winners will become State Winners with the opportunity to become part of 12 National Finalists and ultimately be named National Winners and earn lucrative scholarships.
