`Unsung Heroes' to be honored at McCormick banquet tonight

105 athletes in running for pair of scholarships


The 59th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet will be held tonight at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn.

A total of 105 candidates, two of whom will be honored as the 1999 Unsung Heroes scholarship winners, have been chosen to represent 69 Baltimore City and County public, private, parochial and independent schools. Scholarships valued at $5,000 a year for each of four academic years will be presented to one male athlete and one female athlete selected as Unsung Heroes.

Cathy Rigby, former Olympic gymnast and current Broadway performer, will serve as guest speaker at the event.

Originally established in 1940 by the late Charles P. McCormick, the program recognizes unselfish team play and honors those who contribute substantially to the success of their teams without receiving acclaim. The banquet will salute deserving male football players and female basketball players.

For information, call 410-771-7310.
