Meet Selfless Senior Dominick Apodaca

Dominick is among the Class of 2018 honorees who were recognized at the Gold Bar Gala.

Dominick is a defender and advocate, and his courage inspires his peers and gives us hope for a better future. 

He served as president of the Empower Anti-Violence Club, where he helped to create a presentation on unhealthy relationships to help his peers identify and find refuge from unsafe situations. He encouraged 247 of his fellow students to sign the Anti-Gun Violence Pledge, and he organized the Anti-Gun Violence Walk. 

He also serves as a New Mexico Advocate Against Child Abuse.

Dominick devotes time to help the hungry, homeless and disabled. He even volunteers with the Petroglyph Little League to share his love of baseball. Despite his own struggles, and even because of them, Dominick is always ready to do anything and everything he can to help those less fortunate.  

Thanks to the generosity of Frank Frost Photography, Dominick and the 13 other 2018 Selfless Seniors were also 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, is an annual event that raises money for school and classroom grants awarded through the APS Education Foundation.
