Stringer to speak at Unsung Heroes Banquet

C. Vivian Stringer, head women's basketball coach at Rutgers University and soon-to-be inductee in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, will deliver the keynote address at the 69th Annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet Monday at the Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn.

A total of 118 high school senior boys and girls, two of whom will be honored as the 2009 Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship winners, have been chosen to represent 72 Baltimore area public, private, parochial and independent schools. The scholarship, valued at $36,000 over four academic years, will be presented to one male and one female athlete selected as the top Unsung Heroes.


The awards recognize unselfish team play and honor 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.
