Tickets are on sale for the True Grit Award banquet.
The banquet will be held at Fountain Head Country Club on May 8, starting at 6 p.m.
The True Grit award is presented to student-athletes who might not be the stars of their team, but have overcome some kind of obstacle to remain a member of the team and usually an inspiration to the other players.
The guest speaker this year will be Linn Hendershot, a former Hagerstown City Council member. Hendershot, who is confined to a wheelchair from a bout with childhood polio, is director of communications for Western Maryland Hospital Center.
Hendershot has shown a wide interest in sports during an impressive career, which included stints in sports marketing and sports information with Bucknell University, the Atlanta Falcons, United States Auto Club, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and NASCAR.
