MARY PANG “UNSUNG HERO AWARD”

 

Mary Pang was always in charge of the situation, you never saw her lose her head — ever. She was one of those people you just noticed. And she loved to make people smile.  In the decades before Chinese food was as ordinary as a grocery-store deli, there was Mary Pang, whom most people knew from the name on the red-and-yellow boxes of egg rolls in their freezers. With her husband Harry in the kitchen, she was the public face of a Seattle frozen-food business that grew from virtually nothing to a million-dollar concern. Mrs. Pang, died of a heart attack March 6,2009 at age 87.

 

The Award:

Martin Pang raced with NWR and was the apple of his mom’s eye. He liked to do things for NWR at the races. The Region’s BOD and Marty got together to create the “Unsung Hero” award so honor could be given to someone for doing something spectacular for the Region, without being otherwise expected to (such as being an officer or chief) that was valuable to the Region. It was intended as a way to reward someone who was not going to receive any of our other awards but was deserving of some recognition.

 

As in all volunteer organizations, there are many positions and many tasks that are accomplished by many visible people in the Northwest region.  The Unsung Hero Award gives us a chance to recognize someone who accomplishes many tasks without that high visibility.  The winner of this award generally is another one of those obsessive-compulsive types who quietly volunteers, works their butt off, and is mostly seen on the sidelines. This trophy is to be awarded to an individual who works “behind the scenes” to further venue and Region activities.
