Friday is Deadline to Nominate Selfless Seniors

We want to recognize high school seniors who give of their time and effort to make others feel valued.

You can help us recognize these exceptional students by nominating APS high school seniors who give of their time and effort, not for college and job applications or praise and recognition, but out of a sense of duty to others, to make others feel valued.

The APS Education Foundation is accepting nominations for the 11th class of Selfless Seniors. After years of growing up by giving back, these young men and women will finally be recognized for working behind the scenes to make their schools and our communities a better place.

One high school senior will be chosen from each of the 13 traditional APS high schools, and one will be chosen to represent APS magnet schools. The Selfless Seniors will be recognized at the APS Education Foundation’s annual Gold Bar Gala on March 22, 2019. 

Once again, notable Albuquerque photographer Frank Frost will help capture their essence by providing free portraits for each of the Selfless Seniors. Frank Frost Photography has partnered with the APS Education Foundation to honor these students since the inception of Selfless Seniors in 2008.

The deadline to submit your nomination is 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19.
