Inspire Awards

Tuesday, October 3, 2017


Annually, the Inspire Awards honors and celebrates some of the present, past and future stars in SAISD.  At this event, we honor SAISD Alumni, Friends of SAISD and Innovative SAISD Teachers and share their accomplishments and contributions with the San Antonio community.  We accept nominations for SAISD alumni stars to honor at this event on a rolling basis.  You may use the form to the right to nominate a distinguished SAISD alumnus and click on the link or scroll below to see the the outstanding alumni and friends we have honored to date.  Now our premier fundraising event, funds raised at this event support the majority of the classroom and school grants we award throughout the year.

On October 3, 2017 we had nearly 600 guests join us to honor our STARS! Thank you to our many sponsors and guests who through this event have made our giving possible. More information and photos coming soon.
