Golden State Warriors Present ROCK with Unsung Heros Award
Three Bay Area residents — Magen Clay, Regina Jackson and Curt Yagi — were honored with the inaugural Golden State Warriors Unsung Heroes Award tonight at the team’s game against the Indiana Pacers at Oracle Arena. The Unsung Heroes Award is presented to local residents who go above and beyond to uplift their community by inspiring youth to help them reach their goals, and who strive daily to make their community a greater place.
The winners were presented their awards during a special on-court halftime presentation with Warriors President and COO Rick Welts and Legend Alvin Attles. Each recipient was presented with a plaque that read: “In sincere gratitude and deep appreciation of your outstanding contributions rendered to the community, we recognize your countless hours of distinguished service with this Unsung Heroes Award.”
Yagi has served as the executive director of R.O.C.K. (Real Options For City Kids) since 2003, offering a valuable resource to children who live in or attend school in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley. Since joining the organization, he has used his passion for non-profit work and experience in the business world to help promote the positive development and long-term success of the youth that that R.O.C.K. serves by providing opportunities to those that might now otherwise have access.
