Complete list of 114 honorees listed here; 80th annual UH celebration can be viewed on May 11 via live stream

HUNT VALLEY, Md., May 4, 2020 - McCormick & Company, Incorporated (NYSE: MKC), a global leader in flavor, today announced that its 80th annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Ceremony will now be held as a virtual event on Monday, May 11, 2020. To date, the company has awarded more than $1.8 million in scholarships to student athletes. For 80 years, nominees, parents or guardians, coaches and athletic directors have been invited to participate in the historic Unsung Heroes event. This year, given concerns around large events due to COVID-19, the company has decided to host a virtual event that will allow teammates, extended family, teachers, and friends to also join the event from their homes to celebrate their unsung hero. In lieu of a keynote speaker, the student-athletes being honored will hear a congratulatory message from Justin Tucker, Kicker for the Baltimore Ravens. Sports radio personality Scott Garceau, of 105.7 The Fan, will serve as emcee for the event, and music will be provided by DJ Kopec, the official DJ for the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders. To join the event, please do so through the event’s landing page: https://mccormickunsungheroes.hosted.events/Home The event is scheduled from 6:30 p.m.-to 8 p.m. EST and will also be simulcasted on the home page of VarsitySportsNetwork.com. The McCormick Unsung Heroes Banquet honors deserving student-athletes across all sports. A total of 114 high school seniors from 69 Baltimore area public, private, parochial and independent schools have been nominated. Two of the honorees – one male and one female – will receive the 2020 Charles Perry McCormick Scholarship, valued at $40,000 over four academic years. Two $7,500 scholarships and two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to students for their efforts on and off the field, for a total of $105,000 in scholarships given to deserving students at the virtual event. 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 Chairman Charles P. McCormick Sr., the program is reflective of McCormick & Company’s core belief in The Power of People.
