On Thursday, April 9, 2015 the APS Education Foundation honored Del Norte’s Tara Spencer in the 2015 class of Selfless Seniors during a ceremony at Atrisco Heritage Academy.

“In helping people, I love to see the smile in their eyes and knowing I made someone’s day even for a little bit.”

Tara took her cues in helping others from her grandmother, who helped her take pride in her work and traditional values. She performed community service at a home for seniors, helping with activities for the elders, which helped her break out of her shell – and influenced her to be more optimistic. Interested in learning more about her Navajo language and traditions, Tara is active in athletics, and served as a high school representative for Native American Students in APS.

APS Education Foundation  Selfless SeniorsThe 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.
