“Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant” was a creative (we like to think) and financial success despite some early doubts about its virtual venue. Thanks to our fine sponsors — WellMed, University Health, H-E-B, VIA Metropolitan Transit and the San Antonio Express-News — and our ever-faithful fans, we raised money for scholarships.
And we hope you’re ready to help us do it again!
THE A-TEAM IS BACK
The creative mind of Entertainer Extraordinaire Michael Quintanilla is bursting with ideas, as are the brains of Director/Choreographer Francisco Saucedo Jr. and Executive Producers Nora López and David Elizondo.
Don’t know yet whether it will be virtual again on YouTube or whether we will be taking it under the spotlights on stage, but Gridiron 2021 is shaping up to be another tour de farce, folks! Start saving those nickles and dimes and make plans to join us this fall for Gridiron 2021. We’ll give you the date (dates?) here just as soon as we get it confirmed.
As always, it’s all for a good cause: scholarships for the next generation of truth-tellers, the journalists.
Over the years, the Society of Professional Journalists – San Antonio chapter has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to scores of college students and our wonderful, long-suffering audiences have been the reason we’ve been able to do that.
This year, the nonprofit was able to give out seven scholarships for the 2021-22 scholastic year to students attending Texas A&M – San Antonio, Texas State University, Trinity University, the University of the Incarnate Word and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
Here’s hoping you all have a safe and happy summer!
