BLOOMINGTON -- Pillager is one of four Minnesota high schools that has received a donation from Wendy's International.
Lee Roberts of Pillager was one of four Wendy's High School Heisman state winners that were honored Saturday in Bloomington at the Wendy's High School Heisman Awards banquet. Roberts, one of the state's top winners from a field of 12 state finalists, received a silver medal and a $500 donation to his school.
The banquet awarded bronze medals to 21 Minnesota state finalists who excel in athletics, academics and community service. Roberts was one of four students who represented Minnesota in the Upper U.S. Region. Regional winners advanced to the Wendy's National High School Heisman awards ceremony last month in New York City, prior to the NCAA Heisman Trophy ceremony.
