About Us

  • Lujan-Chavez Elementary School opened in July 2001, to serve half the population of students who attended Helen Ball Elementary School previously. We share our facility with Sun Ridge Middle School. Our school is named after two former Socorro students, Private Alvaro Lujan and Sgt. Luis Escajeda Chavez, who died serving our country in World War II. Private Lujan received the Purple Heart for his bravery; he died in 1945. He was originally buried in Bastro, Belgium. He is now buried in the cemetery at the Socorro mission. Sgt. Chavez was in the 36th artillery division. In 1945, he was stationed in Salerno, Italy where he was killed while sweeping for landmines. He was 29 years old.
