Albuquerque High School student gets big surprise in class

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque High student got a big surprise in class Monday.

His grandmother, Denise Armijo, got home Sunday night after spending 26 months working as a civilian for the military in Afghanistan.

Armijo also found homecomings to be sentimental and exciting, so she wanted to surprise her grandson Jude.

“That was wonderful. I kind of had to look around. He was sitting right there in front of me. I didn’t see him until he stood up, but it was wonderful,” she said.

Armijo plans on surprising her middle school granddaughter on Tuesday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
