A Sacramento Kings executive is getting some national recognition.

Kunal Merchant is one of 24 members in the inaugural class of what's called the Cross Sector Leadership Fellows.

They're men and women who have been able to bring together businesses, government, and nonprofits on big projects.

"Sacramento is doing such great work on the arena, that we're a national model," Merchant said. 

The former chief of staff to Mayor Kevin Johnson will be honored at the White House tomorrow, before getting down to business.

"Meeting with members of the president's administration and actually presenting to them on some of the work that we're doing," he said. 

Something advisers like: the outreach from the Kings to the homeless, arts and youth organizations.
