McCracken County High School senior Barrett Buchanan has been named a School Winner in the Heisman High School Scholarship program.
The Heisman High School Scholarship presented by Acceptance Insurance continues a 27-year tradition of honoring high school seniors who accomplish tremendous feats in the classroom, on the field, and most importantly, within their communities. The scholarship recognizes and rewards both male and female high school athletes who are community-minded and driven to use their exceptional talents for the benefit of all.
By inviting male and female students from schools across the country to share their stories of leadership and impact, the program aims to inspire all students to harness their potential, push their limits, and use their talents not only to advance their own futures, but to improve the communities and world around them.
Buchanan is a leader and the kicker for the McCracken County High School Varsity Football team. He’s part of several school and community activities, including MCHS student government and the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce’s Youth LEAD program. He was also named the Paducah Bank Teen of the Week in September.
His parents are Mary and Brandon Buchanan.
