Community leader and former General Motors union head Johnny GIvand was honored this past weekend for his involvement in youth sports with a banquet at the Friendly House.

Master of Ceremony Ned Cameron says Givand made a name for himself as a president of the Mansfield Little League and as a local youth sports coach.

Former Mansfield Senior football coach Stan Jefferson introduced the keynote speaker, former Ohio State University linebacker Obie Stillwell.

Cameron says other community members need to be recognized for giving back to local youth.

Other awards were presented to coaches W.B. Jefferson, Herman Puckett, Ophinell Davis and Ocie Hill.
