COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Peñuelas has volunteered his time with Moving Mountains where he helped seniors in need. Peñuelas has also volunteered with Adelante San Luis, with economic development, social connections and revitalizing culture in his community.

WHY IS COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT IMPORTANT?

“I’m really big on culture and helping my community stay connected, by creating the community we want.”

IF I COULD IMPROVE THE WORLD I WOULD…

“Bring awareness to what’s going wrong and not working, and help people learn how to work together to right the wrongs by setting the example, by helping others.”

COLLEGE OF CHOICE

Peñuelas has applied and has been accepted to Adams State University, New Mexico State University, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and has decided to attend Trinidad State Junior College because of their mechanics program.
