Rep. Marcia Hahn receives sportsmen’s award at banquet

State Rep. Marcia Hahn, R-138th, is the recipient of this year’s Gerald Seyfried Sportsman of the Year Award, presented during the recent Whitetail Deer Classic banquet at Northampton Banquet & Event Center.

“This came as a complete surprise when they called my name,” Hahn said. “Gerald is well known and well respected by our local hunters and anglers, and receiving an award inspired by him is quite an honor.”

The award is named after the former Northampton County executive, an avid sportsman who inspired the creation of the Whitetail Deer Classic, now in its 16th year.

The Northampton County Junior Conservation School, an environmental education organization, serves as host for the banquet.

“The Whitetail Deer Classic is an event that all of our sportsmen and sportswomen look forward to,” Hahn said. “In addition to featuring great prizes compliments of generous sponsors, the banquet raises a tremendous amount of money to support many local outdoor events, including youth field days and handicapped fishing derbies.”

Hahn is a former member of the House Game and Fisheries Committee and a longtime supporter of the Whitetail Deer Classic and the sportsmen of Northampton County.
