Warriors Honor Martin Luther King, Jr. - 1/17/11
January 1, 2011
On January 17th, the Warriors honored Martin Luther King Jr. through their Read To Achieve and Junior Leaders community relations program.
Throughout the day, third through fifth graders from Northern Light School in Oakland shadowed Warriors employees and media members to experience first-hand the responsibilities and duties of various professions at an NBA game.
The Junior Leaders gained valuable experience in such areas as business operations and VIP Services ...
... corporate sales ...
... security ...
... community relations ...
... event management ...
... in-game entertainment ...
... game operations ...
... public relations ...
... reporting ...
... ticket services ...
... box office operations ...
... luxury suite services and much more.
Junior Leader Justin Smith worked alongside Warriors Hype Man Franco Finn during GTOe-TV, the live, in-house pregame show at Oracle Arena.
Taking on the role of a junior player, Joshua Caldwell was introduced along with the Warriors' starting lineup.
As each player was introduced, they participated in a pregame book exchange.
Books and reading were a common theme of the day, as fans were asked to donate new or gently used books to those in need.
In addition, Ekpe Udoh joined the Warrior Girls in hosting a Reading Time Out, presented by Ross Stores, prior to the game.
As the books were read, the kids listened attentively.
An appearance from Clifford the Big Red Dog at the event brought smiles to the kids' faces.
After the reading, the kids had to chance to answer questions for special Warriors prizes.
Back on the floor, Warriors guard Acie Law addressed the crowd about the legacy of Dr. King.
And during a break in the action, all 15 of the Junior Leaders were recognized with a special on-court ceremony.
The Warriors also recognized five Bay Area Community Heroes who have made outstanding contributions to the community through their tireless and countless hours of distinguished service.
From the Junior Leaders program ...
... to the Reading Time Out ...
... to the book drive ...
... the Warriors honored Dr. King's legacy throughout the day.
The Warriors thank ROSS Stores for its continued support of the community as the presenting sponsor of the Warriors Read to Achieve program.
