For over 30 years the Tempe Diablos have been honoring educators and students who have demonstrated excellence in the classroom and beyond. Since 2010, these programs have culminated every spring with the highly anticipated black-tie awards banquet, held at the Tempe Center for the Arts hosted by celebrity emcees with guests including school district leadership, community leaders, and local businesses.
The Excellence in Education event is the only of its kind in the valley. Teachers have called it “The Academy Awards of Education” because of the red carpet entry, the Tempe Diablos hosting the black-tie event in their tuxedoes and the awards given. It’s a spectacular night honoring outstanding educators serving the Tempe community and it’s the Diablos mission in action.
The Tempe Diablos award 30 scholarships at the event to Tempe students who demonstrate leadership inside and outside of the classroom to Arizona State University or one of the Maricopa Community Colleges.
The event will also be livestreamed on tempediablos.org.
