Al Teglia has contributed in many ways to our San Mateo County community! He has received special recognition, honors, and awards throughout his life.
In 2005, Al was awarded the Jefferson Award for helping the needy and making a difference in his community. The Albert Teglia Community Center in Daly City was named to honor him and is open to the community. Al was honored by having the Albert M. Teglia Blvd. in Colma/Daly City named after him. There is an engraved bronze plaque showcased for children’s dental services at Mike Nevin Health Clinic in Daly City. He received special recognition in the San Mateo County Women’s Hall of Fame. Al was one of six individuals who received the 49’ers Community Quarterback Award from the San Francisco 49ers Foundation, in partnership with NFL Charities, for his leadership, dedication and commitment to bettering the San Francisco Bay Area.
The San Mateo County Historical Association has a Movie Framed Memorabilia poster “Made in America: San Mateo County’s Journey from Dairies to DNA” dated December 7, 2006 with autographs of many special SMC community members like Al Teglia, Gene Mullin, Jackie Speier and so many more community leaders.
