Selfless Senior Spotlight: Tyler Chavez

Tyler Chavez of Rio Grande High School

“My name is Tyler Chavez, and I am very thankful to have been honored for something like this.  I never would’ve thought I would’ve earned something so insane as being a Selfless Senior. Genuinely I have always just wanted people to feel comfortable around me and want everyone to feel appreciated. My parents have always raised me to just treat everyone with respect, and after my father passed away earlier this year, I really took everything he and my mother had taught me and tried to really use that every day. I try and treat everyone with respect and go that extra mile for anything, whether it’s opening the door for someone, carrying things, or just anything that someone around needs help with. I’m just a normal kid. I learned a lot about respect and how to treat people from playing sports my whole life, and I really just try and use the lessons I’ve learned throughout my life to help others and even teach others.

When I graduate from high school my hope for Albuquerque is that the community and the people can have a healthy relationship with each other, and everyone’s opinions are heard in one way or another.”
