The Albuquerque Public Schools Foundation’s Selfless Seniors program has honored Del Norte Senior Juan Murguia as one of the 2020 Selfless Seniors. Now in its 13th year, the program aims to shine a spotlight on students who have worked to make the community a better place.
“Hello! My name is Juan Murguia and I am a proud Del Norte knight. I apologize for my awkwardness, but I really don’t know what to say. I’ve never written anything like this before. I want to thank my nominator for allowing me to be a part of something as wonderful as this. I would also like to thank my teachers and church for helping make this possible. I almost feel wrong for writing this because I don’t want it to seem like I am boasting, but I cannot tell you how happy it makes me feel to know that I am getting recognized for community service. I have been trying to help in my community as much as possible. I first started doing community service in the 7th grade and continued from there. I am constantly busy and it makes me happy to know that I am able to help my community and those around me. I have read all of the Selfless Senior statements on this page and I can’t explain how happy it makes me hear that even though all of the hardships that some of my peers have gone through, they fought through and still helped out in their communities. I find their stories amazing and would like to thank them all. I don’t like talking too much about myself but I would like to thank those who helped me with this recognition and thank those of you that were also selected a Selfless Senior for being the amazing selfless people that you are! I am very excited I get to meet you all!”
