On November 9, 2019 the SAWCC Foundation, in partnership with the SAWCC, will honor women of our community who exhibit the following attributes of Advocating, Connecting, and Empowering (A.C.E.) women at our Annual Constellation of Stars Awards Gala being held at Valero's headquarters in The Vista.  These attributes can be distinguished as follows:
  • Advocate…for women’s issues in the work place (locally, state wide, or nationally) with key decision makers. Women’s issues may include, but are not limited to children and family issues, rights to health decisions, elder care matters, etc.
  • Connect…women with others who can provide assistance in professional and personal matters so that success can come to fruition.
  • Empower…women, men, and children to accomplish their immediate and long term goals with additional new skills and resources.

Please note that the Constellation of Stars Awards honors outstanding women at various stages of their lives from “up and comers” to “seasoned” women in the community.  They will be awarded in the following categories:
