JISD Choir Students Sing
At D-Day Memorial
Judson ISD students who are part of the
Texas Children's Choir were partici-
pants in a wonderful memorial ceremo-
ny honoring the soldiers who fought
and died in the D-Day Normandy Inva-
sion 70 years ago. The string of events
and memorials began June 6th. Fiona
Neil and Taylor Hockley, both Judson
High School sophomores and 8th grade
Judson Middle School student Alicia
Ford were there in Normandy, France to
sing at this solemn recognition. Along
with them in attendance were President
Obama and the First Lady.
The Texas Childrens' Choir has
performed in some of the most
prestigious venues across the
country and the world.
FFA Chapter, Students Rank In State, Nation
The Judson High School FFA Chapter has been recognized as one of the top chapters in the
entire state of Texas. It was honored with the Golden Horizon award…the highest state rank-
ing that an FFA chapter can get. The Judson FFA also picked up the Golden Emblem rating
which is presented to only the top 10 percent of FFA chapters in the state and carries a nation-
al ranking as well. Both honors are based on how chapters employ the FFA mission and strate-
gies, focusing on student, chapter and community development. The Judson FFA competes
nationally in October.
