The 80th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Ceremony, presented by McCormick & Company, Inc., was held virtually on May 11. In lieu of a keynote speaker, the student-athletes being honored heard a congratulatory message from Justin Tucker, kicker for the Baltimore Ravens. Sports radio personality Scott Garceau, of 105.7 The Fan, served as emcee for the event, and music was provided by DJ Kopec, the official DJ for the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders.
The Unsung Heroes program recognizes unselfish student-athletes and honors those who substantially contribute to the success of their school without receiving acclaim. Originally established in 1940 by former McCormick & Company Chair Charles P. McCormick Sr., the program is reflective of McCormick & Company’s core belief in The Power of People.
