find polys that are fully surrounded by other polys that do not have a null value

Discussion created by adcimapguy on Feb 25, 2014
are there a series of geoprocessing tools (or a single tool) that can flag or select a polygon within the same feature class if they are surrounded by a group of polygons that all have the same vale and are not null? See attached photo: the center polygon is empty, and I need to calculate the value from the surrounding blue features.
