McCormick Announces 78th Annual Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet

SPARKS, Md., April 30, 2018 - McCormick & Company, Incorporated (NYSE: MKC), a global leader in flavor, today announced that Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues will deliver the keynote address at the 78th Annual McCormick Unsung Heroes Awards Banquet to be held on Monday, May 7, 2018.

Mr. Bogues’ distinguished basketball career got its start at Dunbar High School in Baltimore, where his team won 59 consecutive games and is still highly regarded as one of the greatest high school teams of all time.  After a successful college career at Wake Forest (where his number was retired), Mr. Bogues went on to play 14 seasons in the NBA, leading both the Charlotte Hornets and Toronto Raptors to their firstever playoff appearances.  Mr. Bogues currently serves as an Ambassador for the Charlotte Hornets where he makes appearances at games and community events, and he was recently featured with his Dunbar teammates in an ESPN 30 for 30 special titled “Baltimore Boys.”

The McCormick Unsung Heroes Banquet honors deserving student athletes across all sports.  A total of 113 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 2018 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 banquet.

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.

More than 700 city and county officials, school administrators, coaches, honorees and guests are expected to attend this year’s event.
