May 02, 1994

A total of 100 candidates have been chosen to represent 65 Baltimore City and County public, private, parochial and independent schools at the 54th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes on Friday at the Marriott Hunt Valley Inn.

One male and female athlete will be chosen as the 1994 Unsung Heroes and will receive a McCormick scholarship, valued at $3,500 per year for each of four academic years.
