Posted April 2020
Congratulations to our Kyrene Excellence in Education Award finalists! For 30+ years, the Tempe Diablos have awarded educators and school staff for their dedication in enhancing learning, promoting positive school culture, and for leaving a lasting impact on students, colleagues and the community as a whole.
Kyrene staff and educators were for all eight categories. Thank you to those who took the time to nominate and recognize a member of Team Kyrene. Tempe Diablos Charities will be hosting this event virtually on their Facebook page. Even if you don't have a Facebook account, you can still watch live online.
