Unsung Hero Award
During four decades in Dallas, broadcaster Scott Murray has helped raise money for hundreds of organizations.
But on Dec. 3, the former NBC TV sports director/anchor won’t be the emcee. That role goes to Jim Keyes, who will preside as The Scholarship Fund and the University of North Texas/Dallas present the inaugural Unsung Hero Award to Murray.
The Dec. 3 event from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Briscoe Carpenter Pavilion at Fair Park also will serve as a fund-raiser to help Dallas area students attend college. Visit thescholarshipfund.org.
