Nominate a Selfless Senior

2014 Selfless Senior LogoIt’s time to find the 2018 Class of Selfless Seniors, made possible by Frank Frost Photography. It won’t be easy because in every one of our high schools there are great kids who believe in helping their families, their neighbors, their classmates, their communities, their world.

But the opportunity to recognize those stellar students is here. The Foundation is seeking nominations for the 2018 Selfless Seniors, who will be recognized at the April 27 Gold Bar Gala at Sandia Resort and Casino.

The online nomination form will be available through Oct. 20.  All nominations must be received by 5pm on October 20th for consideration.

Some Selfless Seniors fit the profile -- high school "stars" who are easily identified at their schools for their exploits in the classroom or in extracurricular activities. Others have been standouts without being recognized at all. That's the beauty of Selfless Seniors – it’s available to the kid everyone knows, and the kid no one appreciates enough.

One Selfless Senior will represent each of the 13 comprehensive district high schools. A Selfless Senior also will be named from a group representing APS Schools of Choice and district-authorized charter schools. In all, at least 14 of the most giving and community minded students in Albuquerque will be recognized.

Anyone in the community may nominate a Selfless Senior, and the bottom line is this: our Selfless Seniors give of themselves -- often without being asked or noticed. They volunteer in community programs, within their schools, or helped their families. None are resume-builders; they simply and sincerely want to help.

Selfless Seniors also must:

  • Be a senior at an APS comprehensive or alternative high school, or an APS Charter School.
  • Have a GPA of at least 2.0 and be in good standing with the school in terms of attendance and behavior.
  • Give back to a school, community and/or family without generally being recognized for those efforts by peers or the school.

Once again, Selfless Seniors is only made possible by the generosity and dedication of Albuquerque photographer Frank Frost, who donates his time and skill to create beautiful portraits of each student. Those photos hang on the walls of the district’s high schools, at community businesses and also at the Albuquerque International Sunport. A year ago, key sponsors included the University of Phoenix, TIG and Comcast.
