What: The Albuquerque Public Schools Education Foundation will honor the sixth class of Selfless Seniors, high school students who give back to their communities often without being recognized for their efforts.

Who: APS Superintendent Winston Brooks; University of New Mexico Women’s Basketball Coach Yvonne Sanchez; APS Foundation Executive Director Phill Casaus; APS High School Principals; Photographer Frank Frost; and the 28 Selfless Seniors:

  • Matthew Lowrance, Margaret McGovney and Chelsea Otterness of Albuquerque High
  • Vivianne Gonzalez, Dominic Marquez and Alex Trujillo-Romero of Atrisco Heritage Academy
  • Ricky Garcia of Cibola
  • Corinne Foskey of Del Norte
  • Haley Davisson and Annie Majewski of Eldorado
  • Laverne Johnson of Freedom
  • Karina Ayala Lugo and Di-Linh Hoang of Highland
  • Andrew Lopez and Brad Wible of La Cueva
  • Kirstie Lopez of Manzano
  • Heather Rooke of Nex+Gen Academy
  • Jonah Fernandez and Medea Hill of Rio Grande
  • Valeria Ojeda and Brandon Padilla of Sandia
  • Brianna Andolina and Jessica Montano of Valley
  • Christopher Carrica, Gregory Corkern and Nikkie Duran of Volcano Vista
  • Cristina Campa and Carlos Vargas of West Mesa.

When: 3:30-5 p.m. Wednesday, March 27

Where: The gym at Del Norte High School at the corner of Montgomery and San Mateo NE (use the entrance on San Mateo just north of Montgomery). Reception to follow in the foyer of the new school building.

Why: Each year, the APS Education Foundation recognizes Selfless Seniors who are serious about their futures, yet find ways to put others before themselves. These students maintain a GPA of at least 2.0 and are in good standing in terms of attendance and behavior at APS comprehensive or alternative high schools. But more importantly, they’ve had a positive impact on the lives of others and have characters that set them apart.

The APS Education Foundation would like to thank this year’s sponsors: Sprint, Hinkle Family Fun Center, ABQ International Sunport, Clear Channel Outdoor, Xerox and Peter Piper Pizza.
