Salute to Excellence
Our past events have included a Salute to Excellence. This recognition event is designed to honor San Antonio’s finest leaders and organizations for their contributions in the areas of community contribution, business achievement, leadership and philanthropy. In 2010, the award was renamed the Gov. Dolph Briscoe, Jr. Salute to Excellence Award in memory of Governor Briscoe’s contributions to the state of Texas.
