Wagner ROTC Cadets Had Full Plate During Summer
While summer is a good time to catch a breather from the routine, The Wagner High School
ROTC program took a brief break and cranked it back up again. Cadets gathered at John
Newcombe's Ranch in New Braunfels...otherwise known as Newks Ranch, for the Cadet
Leadership Challenge. Nine schools were there participating with some
coming from as far away as El Paso and Corpus Christi. The camp
helped every cadet with developing skills and values such as communi-
cation, encouragement and decision making. While challenging, it was
a real growing experience for them. In fact, one Wagner Cadet re-
ceived an individual trophy for leadership abilities and 8 other cadets
were chosen as best marching platoon.
Toward the end of the summer, the Senior Leadership welcomed in-
coming freshmen into the program showing them basic drill move-
ments and leadership fundamentals. The whole group then went to
Camp Bullis for the Leadership Reaction Course. This provided a prac-
tical way of working on problem solving and working as a team. It all
wrapped up with CiCi's Pizza and a massive water balloon activity that
was refreshing.
It's also worth mentioning that the Wagner ROTC participated in the
Make A Wish Foundation as they donated $1,000 toward the cause.
WHEW!!! What a Summer!!
As big as the need for health and medical care is now, it will only get bigger in the coming years. So the profession
is looking for good candidates that want to get into the field. But they have to be qualified and they have to possess
the passion for the field. Judson Early College Academy student Hannah Hinojosa has been nominated to attend the
Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Washington D.C. in November. This prestigious group is chosen out of an
honors-only program for high school students who want to become doctors or research scientists. The event is
hoped to encourage and inspire students who have the grit to follow this career path. It’s about giving them support
to stay the course and provide resources and a plan for them to reach their goal. Hannah was nominated by Dr. Con-
nie Mariano, The Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, to repre-
sent Texas. That nomination was based on her academic and leadership qualities along with her sense of determina-
tion as she approaches the field of medicine.
Hannah will attend the three-day congress November 14-16 joining other students across the country to hear from
Nobel Laureates, National Medal of Science winners as well as deans from Ivy League schools and top medical in-
stitutions. It will be a great opportunity for Hannah and we congratulate her knowing she will represent Judson ISD
