In Memory of Cory Mills
Cory Mills was a three sport (football, wrestling, and track) athlete, an individual that worked hard on the field as well as in the classroom. His life tragically ended on January 12, 1990 in a car accident that shook the North Baltimore community.
To honor Cory and what he signified to his classmates and community, an award is handed out in his memory during the senior assembly at the end of the year. This award was first handed out in 1990. It is awarded to an outstanding Senior Athlete voted on by a committee of administrators, teachers, coaches, and of course, those close to him, his fellow classmates. The award is based on academics (2.7 GPA or higher), athletic ability (earning of 2 Varsity awards as a senior), and portrayal of personal qualities that most represented Cory – integrity, leadership, sportsmanship, dedication, coachability, adherence to training rules, a positive attitude, and respect for others.
This year’s recipient will end his senior year as a 3 sport varsity letter winner, with a long list of league and district honors, and a 3.95 GPA. He has been a member of the football, wrestling, baseball and track teams. He is a unique competitor with high expectations for himself and a driven attitude, an unforgettable athlete: David Patterson.
