MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A ceremony is honoring former New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch.

Lynch is scheduled to receive the Robert Frost Contemporary American Award on Tuesday night. Boston Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino is the keynote speaker at the event.

The event at the Manchester Radisson Hotel was originally scheduled for Jan. 27, but was rescheduled due to last week’s snowstorm.

Plymouth State University created the award in 1970 in memory of the nation’s late poet laureate, who taught at an earlier incarnation of the school. The award recognizes New Englanders whose service exemplifies Frost’s values of individuality, hard work, humanitarianism and devotion to the country he described as “north of Boston.”

Lynch was governor from January 2005 until January 2013. He was elected to a historic fourth term in 2010.
