The cornerstone of the Tempe Diablos community outreach is our commitment to enhance youth education in the Tempe area school districts.
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 for Teachers” 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.
Given the recent events around COVID-19 and to protect the safety and health of our community, the Tempe Diablos have decided to move the Excellence in Education event to a virtual event that is streamed and broadcast. This decision follows the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in which gatherings of 50 or more people should be postponed for at least the next eight weeks.
More information about this virtual event will be posted at tempediablos.org so stay tuned!
