RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Billy Ray Cyrus will honor a Nevada math teacher killed by a 12-year-old student in a school-yard shooting last fall.
 
The country singer will recognize Michael Landsberry at a concert Saturday night in Incline Village by presenting a plaque and check to his widow, Sharon.
 
The 45-year-old Marine veteran tried to talk the shooter into turning over the handgun before the youth shot him in the chest Oct. 21 at a middle school in the Reno suburb of Sparks. The student wounded two classmates before taking his life.
 
Cyrus says Landsberry represents the courage of the Vietnam veteran honored in his patriotic song, "Some Gave All."   
 
Cyrus and his father, Ronald, made similar presentations to honor unsung American heroes for more than a decade, and this will mark the first time he has done so since his father's 2006 death.
