JUDSON ISD’S EXCEL TEACHER OF THE YEAR - JUDITH BOEHME
KITTY HAWK MIDDLE SCHOOL
Each year KENS 5 TV recognizes outstanding teachers
in each school district across the San Antonio metro
area. That allows them to spotlight an outstanding
teacher from each district that is doing amazing things
with students. From the Judson ISD, Kitty Hawk Middle
School 8th grade math teacher Judith Boehme was
honored as the Excel Teacher of the Year. The
television station sent a crew, including anchor
Deborah Knapp, to host the ceremony. They also
shot a story about Ms. Boehme's work as an
encouraging teacher who gets middle school students
ready for the rigors of High School math and inspires
those who have trouble with math in general. She is not only a lead teacher in math in her grade, but during
the spring she holds extra classes for students after school and on Saturdays to make sure they are ready for
the STAAR test. As a part of the Excel honor, the program partner with KENS 5, SACU presented a $1,000
check to her. She has taught at Kitty Hawk Middle School for six years. The story about Ms. Boehme aired
March 27 on KENS 5. Congratulations Ms. Boehme and thank you for what you do for our students.
THREE JUDSON SENIORS COMMIT TO MILITARY ACADEMIES
Students who get nominated and accept
opportunities to attend one of our nation's military
service academies are somewhat rare...so it's even
more special when you have three. That is the case
at Judson High School. Congressman Henry Cuellar
nominated two of the students for military school
appointments and paid a visit to the school to
formalize it all in a ceremony. Congressman Cuellar
nominated Tristan Holiday to the Naval Academy and
Noah Tetro to West Point. Along with these two
students, Brandon Sanders has also been accepted
into the Air Force Academy. Principal Jesus Hernandez
hosted the ceremony with Dr. Willis Mackey offering his congratulations before the Congressman spoke. We
want to extend our congratulations to these students and their families as these three young men will take the
next step in leading others in protecting and defending this great country. We are proud of you.
cheered them on to excellence. Thanks to everyone who help get these students ready and juiced
up to do
their best.
