Former University of Kentucky quarterbacks Jared Lorenzen and Freddie Maggard are the featured speakers for the Tyler Hicks Memorial Scholarship Banquet scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday at Scott County High School.
Tyler Hicks, the son of Scott County basketball coach Billy Hicks, died on Oct. 26, 2012, after injuries sustained from an automobile accident. A scholarship in Tyler’s name was established in Aug. 2014. The $10,000 scholarship ($2,500 for four years) is awarded to an athlete or support-staff member; the fourth recipient will be awarded on Saturday night.
Tickets for the annual banquet, which serves as a fundraiser for the scholarship, are $25. A barbecue-style dinner will be served starting at 6 p.m. Johnson County native Marlana VanHoose will perform during the event.
Tickets can be purchased at www.tylerhicks14memorial.com. Tax-deductible donations can also be made through the website or mailed to:
