Canutillo ISD Garcia Elementary student honored for saving neighbor during dog attack

“Be Safe. Be Kind. Be Ready,” is what Gonzalo and Sofia Garcia Elementary students are taught in school. One student showed these actions and values outside of the campus, and his actions were recognized during a rally.

“Luis really demonstrated our motto, ‘Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Ready’,” Garcia Elementary Principal Theresa Heimer said. “Our chant is a reminder to all students that they need to be safe and responsible in any kind of situation, be kind to all those we meet and greet, and be ready to act in all kinds of situations.”

On the evening of November 25, third-grader Luis Villalva helped save his neighbor, Elvira Frias, who was being attacked by a dog outside her home.

As she yelled for help, Luis and his mother came to her rescue and the dog released her. Frias thanked Luis for being there and helping her in this frightening event.

During the school’s monthly Ravens Pride Pep Rally, Luis was honored and was greeted by his family, law enforcement, and the students and staff at Garcia Elementary.

The celebration took place Friday, December 20, in the Garcia Elementary cafeteria.
