Male, female Unsung Heroes to be named tonight

April 30, 1993

A total of 102 candidates, two of whom will be honored as the 1993 Unsung Heroes, have been chosen to represent 68 Baltimore City and Baltimore County public, private, parochial and independent schools at the 53rd annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet tonight at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn.

McCormick scholarships, valued at $3,500 per year for four academic years, will be presented to one male athlete and one female athlete.
