Medifast to sponsor Chesapeake College HoF event

WYE MILLS – The 10th Chesapeake College Athletic Hall of Fame induction dinner, scheduled for November 7th, will be sponsored by Medifast, a weight-loss company with a distribution center in Ridgely.

This is the second time in four years that Medifast will be sponsoring the dinner, which celebrates the induction of the Hall of Fame’s four latest members.  Medifast has made a $1,000 donation to help current Chesapeake College student athletes attend the dinner and induction ceremony.

“Medifast is just such a great corporate citizen,” said Dr. Barbara Viniar, Chesapeake College’s president.  “Medifast is deeply involved in the community, with sponsorship of this event just one example of their commitment.”

Baseball players Justin Armiger and Brett Ireland, who were teammates on the 2005 team that finished fifth in the NJCAA Division II World Series, will be inducted along with Jordan Wright, who helped take the 2009 women’s softball team to the Division II World Series.  They will be joined by Mohamad Dajani, who led the 2009 men’s soccer team to the best winning percentage in program history.
