Congratulations to Natalie Bates on winning the Charles P. McCormick Unsung Hero Scholarship worth $40,000 on Monday Night at a 78th McCormick Unsung Hero Banquet held at the Valley Mansion.
About the Award:
The McCormick Unsung Hero Banquet honors high school seniors who have been models of sportsmanship and team spirit since 1940.
Each year, McCormick & Co. honors male and female high school seniors who are student athletes in the Baltimore area with the McCormick Unsung Heroes Award. Students are nominated from all sports who display such character traits as:
• Good sportsmanship
• Positive attitude
Each honoree becomes eligible for the Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship. The nominations from each school for the Unsung Heroes Award are reviewed by an independent panel and that group selects one young man and one young woman who have been exemplary in their team contributions to receive the additional recognition. Each Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship winner receives a $40,000 scholarship to help fund the continuation of their education.
