Meet Selfless Senior Chantel Grave de Peralta

We continue to introduce the 2018 Selfless Seniors who will be recognized during the Gold Bar Gala on April 27.

Chantel Grave de Peralta of Atrisco Heritage Academy High School understands that one person truly can make a difference.  She has served as a wildlife rescue volunteer, a nature guide at Albuquerque Biopark, a member of the Atrisco Heritage Environmental Stewardship Club, a volunteer at the Rehabilitation Center of Albuquerque and as a tutor at George I. Sanchez Collaborative Community School.  Chantel even volunteered at Carlos Rey Elementary School by reading to kindergarteners. Chantel joins so many efforts to help others that the list goes on and on.

Thanks to the generosity of Frank Frost Photography, Chantel and the 13 other 2018 Selfless Seniors will also be recognized at the Gold Bar Gala on April 27, 2018.  The Gold Bar Gala, presented by Award Sponsors Comcast, RayLee Homes:  A New Generation and Technology Integration Group, raises money for school and classroom grants awarded through the APS Education Foundation.
