The Santa Clara County Alliance of Black Educators (SCCABE) is presenting its 35th Annual Recognition Program for African-American students and community leaders. Several changes are being made to our program due to the pandemic. However, we are again requesting your assistance in identifying deserving students and community members. Please share this information with your colleagues.
