Leaders & Legends

Every year, we host a celebration of the leaders and legends in Arizona who have been champions for students and have promoted the value of education in our state. In 2019, on the 10th anniversary of the Leaders & Legends event, we recognized Jane and Vince Roig for their steadfast commitment to Arizona’s students, families, and communities. And what a celebration it was!

Thanks to our generous sponsors and contributors, Leaders & Legends enabled us to sustain and expand our work with the next generation of Arizona leaders.
