Strengthening Families Washington 2016 Unsung Hero Ricky Yates




February 28, 2016

Honoree:  Ricky Yates

Nominator:  Dr. Kim Washington-Watson

 

Ricky Yates is a proud parent and counselor at Foss High School.  He goes beyond the scope of his duties providing a safe learning environment for hundreds of inner city youth.  He is a parent, yet I have seen him provide resilience, knowledge of parenting and child development, while providing concrete supports in times of need for countless young adults and parents.  He deserves this recognition for the work he not only does with his own children but countless other children who rely on him beyond the parameters of school. 

 

Seattle's Child is proud to once again sponsor the Unsung Heroes being honored in February by  the Department of Early Learning’s Strengthening Families Washington. Every day this month we'll present an Unsung Hero on seattleschild.com.   Nominations are accepted from around the state and and include biological parents, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents. Some volunteer at local schools; some have started nonprofit organizations; some mentor others in their communities. All honorees are true heroes - outstanding caregivers doing important work on behalf of children.
