At SACU, our purpose is to serve others – not only our members, but all who call San Antonio home – and this is accomplished through an unwavering support of education at all levels.

The ExCEL Award Program

SACU and KENS 5 joined together in 1999 to recognize and lend support to San Antonio area educators. This partnership came to be known as the ExCEL Award which celebrates innovation in education.  Since then, one teacher from each area school district is recognized annually with a $1,000 check from SACU and a KENS 5 news feature on the difference he or she is making in public education. We’ve honored nineteen of the area’s finest educators with awards totaling $19,000 each year for 16 years, and counting.
