On Thursday, March 17, 2016 the APS Education Foundation honored Del Norte’s Xena Gurule. An accomplished artist, Xena is the primary caregiver to her elderly grandmother, with whom she lives. “The nicest compliment I ever received is when my grandma tells her friends and relatives how wonderful I am and how thankful she is. I like making my grandparent proud of me.”
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.
