Submit Your Nomination for the APS Hall of Honor

Deadline for nominations is Dec. 8.

Nominations for inductees to the APS Hall of Honor are now being accepted. Anyone can nominate an individual who has had a positive and enduring impact on students during their career with Albuquerque Public Schools.

The selectees will be inducted into the APS Hall of Honor at the APS Education Foundation’s Gold Bar Gala on April 27, 2018. The Gold Bar Gala is an evening celebration of those who have dedicated themselves to build up others, including the 2018 Selfless Seniors and an outstanding corporate partner. 

The Foundation also recognizes Best in Class honorees – those that have received grant money through the generosity of Foundation donors and made a difference in the lives of their students. 

The Gold Bar Gala serves as a fundraising event, in which sponsorships and ticket sales benefit schools and classrooms through the Foundation’s grant programs. The Gold Bar Gala and its Hall of Honor inductions are in their second year. 

“The APS Education Foundation is proud to recognize individuals who have supported public education and given so much of their time and talent to Albuquerque Public Schools. They are driven by the success of students and understand the important role that public education plays in the health of our community,” said Adrian Chavez, APS Education Foundation Board President. 

Jasylyn Shiparski, who also serves on the APS Education Foundation Board of Directors, has taken the lead as the Hall of Honor Chair on the Gold Bar Gala Committee. “I am thrilled and honored to be serving as Chair for the Hall of Honor for this year’s Gold Bar Gala. It’s a privilege to help recognize the great people who have helped to shape the legacy of APS and paved the path for future generations to do the same,” she said.

Nominations will be accepted until December 8, 2017.
