From combined reports
Meridian High's Anna Allred and Matt DeWeese have been nominated for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award.
The award, which is presented in conjunction with the collegiate Heisman, honors the nation's top high school seniors for his and her work on the field, in the classroom and in the community.
Allred is a member of the Lady Wildcats cross country, track, tennis and swimming teams. She does volunteer work for Aldersgate Retirement Community, Special Olympics, Meridian-Lauderdale County Library, Leadership Lauderdale for Youth, Wesley House Community Center and Greater Meridian Jaycees.
Allred scored a 26 on the ACTs, and she has a 4.0 grade point average.
DeWeese is a member of Meridian High's football and tennis team. He does volunteer work for Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics and a youth praise band.
DeWeese scored a 26 on the ACTs, and he has a 4.0 GPA.
"We believe it is important to recognize our young people not just for what they do in the classroom or on the field, but for their contributions to the community," said Meridian High principal R.D. Harris.

South Panola still No. 1
JACKSON The new Mississippi Associated Press Top 20 high school football poll released Monday showed little change from last week's.
The top eight teams remained the same after winning last week.
For the second straight week, South Panola was the unanimous selection at No. 1, receiving all 18 first-place votes from a panel of media members across the state.
The Tigers won their 21st consecutive game, beating Olive Branch 28-10 and knocking the Conquistadors to a tie for 17th.
Wayne County remained No. 2, followed by West Jones, Gulfport, Meridian, West Point, South Pike and Ocean Springs.
Most of the teams in the Little 10 held form, too. Seminary remained No. 1 after beating Heidelberg 18-0 and received 11 first-place votes.
Weir was second, followed by Bruce, Lumberton, Mize, Eupora, Scott Central and O'Bannon. Ray Brooks claimed the ninth spot to itself, and Simpson was 10th.
The Associated Press
No make up with St. Martin
Meridian High School head coach Ed Stanley announced that his team's game against St. Martin this year will not be made up.
The contest, originally scheduled for Sept. 17, was postponed because of Hurricane Ivan.
Stanley said St. Martin will pay a forfeit fee for not being able to reschedule the non-district game.
