Join us on August 30 for the State of Excellence Gala to celebrate our best schools and the leaders who are expanding excellence to students across Arizona.

The Grand Canyon state is on the move. Businesses are innovating and expanding, and Arizona is recognized for the visionary policy environment that makes this possible.

A key chapter of the Arizona story is told in its public schools. Arizona classrooms are being recognized as the fastest academic gainers in the nation over the past decade. How has this happened and who has led the change?

​Join A for Arizona, an initiative of the Arizona Chamber Foundation, for a night of celebration honoring trailblazers in the classroom and champions of policy, all of whom have helped to rapidly expand the number of students – especially those in low-income communities – who have access to and attend a great Arizona school.

Emceed by Arizona Chamber Foundation Chief Executive Officer and A for Arizona co-founder, Lisa Graham Keegan, the State of Excellence Gala, will be a night to remember.
