Meet Selfless Senior Juliet Velhagen

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

Like many high school seniors, Eldorado student Juliet Velhagen is a member of numerous clubs, organizations and teams both inside and outside of school, but what makes her stand out is what she does through them. She uses her time to help build up others.

No matter how busy she is, Juliet will take every opportunity to help someone in need, from taking on large school projects to just being there as a listener and friend.

She has been a volunteer through the National Honor Society and the Spanish National Honor Society and volunteers at the Presbyterian Hospital Pediatric Urgent Care and Montebello Assisted Living Facility, helping people of all ages and backgrounds. An aspiring doctor, her list of volunteer roles has been extensive.

Juliet is an accomplished athlete and academic, but when people talk about her, they talk about her incredibly generous spirit. Juliet does not pick favorites; she simply goes where she is needed. 

Thanks to the generosity of Frank Frost Photography, Juliet, 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 and Technology Integration Group, raises money for school and classroom grants awarded through the APS Education Foundation. Tickets are on sale now.
