THE SETTING: Texans Can Academies–San Antonio recently honored Kim Lewis, CEO of KSL Resources and champion of childhood education and the arts, as its 2021 honoree.
THE STYLE: The annual Texans Can Academies–San Antonio Motherhood Lifetime Achievement Award was the purpose of the annual luncheon that honors leading women in the city who are distinguished for their exemplary compassion and service. San Antonio Country Club was the venue for the event and served as the backdrop for the many guests, including past honorees, for a moving tribute to Lewis. The Mistress of Ceremonies was Deborah Knapp of KENS 5 News. The event’s special speakers included current students of Texans Can Academies San Antonio, Adam Rubio and Jackeline Cabrera.
THE PURPOSE: Gloria Delgado served as the host committee chair. The event benefits the students of Texans Can Academies–San Antonio, a dropout prevention and recovery school now in its 20th year of service to the San Antonio community, which today educates 600 at-risk San Antonio youth. This year’s sold-out event raised $205,000 to advance their mental health services, food services, scholarships, and other vital student support.
