SAN DIEGO, Calif., (September 13, 2021) – San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®) was proud to celebrate San Diego’s finest educators as the presenting sponsor of the 31st Annual “Cox Presents: Salute to Teachers” event. Held in collaboration with the San Diego County Office of Education and Cox® Communications, the awards show is a presentation of the 48th Annual San Diego County Teacher of the Year Awards. SDCCU has supported this event for the past 13 years.
“SDCCU is honored to support this outstanding awards event and celebrate the extraordinary work of teachers and educators who impact our community and students,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Campbell. “Teachers are the leaders who inspire our youth and play a significant role in forging their futures. We applaud each of the nominees for the work they do each day to give students the knowledge, resources and opportunities they need to succeed.”
This year’s event was celebrated differently than in year’s past to ensure the health and safety of attendees. It was a private reception held on Friday September 10 at deck6555 in downtown San Diego. The event will air on Sunday, October 17 at 9 p.m. (PT) on Cox’s YurView Network (Cox Channel 4/1004 and Spectrum Channel 4).
