On Monday November 6, we had the pleasure of hosting San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley.
Sheryl spoke of the unique strengths of San Antonio based on broad involvement of the city with numerous philanthropic groups. Unusual for a city our size, 21% of our general spending goes towards human services – and in a strong partnership with groups including United Way, the San Antonio Area Foundation, Methodist Healthcare Ministries, and the Baptist Health Foundation.
As Sheryl pointed out, there are many needs in the city, but she highlighted education as a place where we have significant needs but have also made significant improvement over the years.
Sheryl challenged us, SVP SA, to keep pushing forward to engage the non-profits in San Antonio and highlighted our work with Youth Code Jam as a good example.
