Since 2010, these programs have culminated every spring with the highly anticipated black tie awards banquet, held at the Tempe Center for the Arts and featuring celebrity emcees and high profile guest speakers.
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 Diablos in their tuxes and the awards. It’s a spectacular night honoring outstanding educators serving the Tempe community and it’s the Diablos mission in action.
Our committee, once again, decided to conduct the 2021 Excellence in Education event to a virtual broadcast. Our hope is that the 2022 Excellence in Education will be an in person celebration of our community educators and students.
