The Judson High School Dental Senior and Junior Interns have taken their respective licensing exams and every single one of them have passed.
The senior interns received their Registered Dental Assisting license last year and have now completed the program by passing the nitrous oxide sedation exam, a comprehensive 18 part exam, with scores of 80% or above. The junior interns took the Registered Dental Assisting licensing exam, which is a comprehensive three section exam and also passed with scores of 80% and above.
Overall, the program which is in its 7th year has maintained a 100% pass rate of both licenses. The interns have worked hard all year. Their respect and passion for the dental field, community, and their families speaks for itself. Congratulations!
You may have seen some of these kids recently in a KSAT-TV feature called Cool Schools. The Salinas Elementary School Running Club is getting more and more members because it's fun and it gives kids another physical outlet to help their whole body and mind. Some of the students recently laced up their running shoes at the HEB Buddy Run. Aaron Montenegro must have put wings on because he took home a 1st place medal...Congratulations to him and everyone who got out there and gave it their all.

KENS 5 TV each year recognizes an outstanding teacher from each school district that goes the extra mile and consistently gets great results from students. From Judson ISD, that award winner is Wagner High School math teacher Paul Fenoglio. He is known to have a great rapport with students and is always willing to tutor any student that needs help...even on weekends. His dedication and quality of instruction as he makes that critical connection with students is part of why he is the Judson ISD ExCEL Teacher of the Year. The overall ExCEL Teacher of the Year will be announced May 1st. Congratulations Mr. Fenoglio and good luck!
