Michael Vick To Be Honored As A “Hero” By Arts Organization
Not only has the 2010 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, Michael Vick bounced back on the field but he has also been given another honor since his recent flack for receiving a ‘key to the city’ in Dallas during Super Bowl weekend.
The Southeastern Virginia Arts Association has announced that Vick will be honored as a “hero” at their annual Black Tie Gala.
A statement released by the organization read,
“Michael D. Vick has epitomized the meaning of ‘hero’ not only by his unparalleled accomplishments on the gridiron, but more importantly, by his relentless resilience in overcoming the obstacles he has faced in his career.”
The obstacles may have been self-imposed by the All-Pro quarterback after serving a prison sentence for funding a dog-fighting ring, but since then he’s worked with the Humane Society to help improve his image.
The $100-per-person gala will be held on March 26th in Vick’s hometown of Virginia.
Is Michael just a positive role model for redemption or is he a hero?
