On Thursday, April 9, 2015 the APS Education Foundation honored Del Norte’s Shelby Harrison in the 2015 class of Selfless Seniors during a ceremony at Atrisco Heritage Academy.
“We can make a difference in this world that we live in simply by helping others.”
During the holidays, Shelby and her family delivered care packages of blankets, socks, snacks, hand warmers and more to those in need. She has helped paint and refurbish homes for victims of domestic violence, takes part in food drives and babysits free of charge for financially strapped parents. Shelby also is a talented musician, athlete and president of the Calculus Club.
The key criteria for the APS Education Foundation’s Selfless Seniors program is simple: Selfless Seniors have given of themselves — often without being noticed. They have volunteered in community programs, within their schools, or helped their families. None are resume-builders; they simply and sincerely want to help.
