Bonnie Schulze: A Life
Dedicated To Serving Others
It was a remembrance
of
the time and dedication that Bonnie Schulze
spent in Judson ISD. She left behind so
many friends and such an impact on stu-
dents and staff that it was fitting that there
would be some way for all of us to remem-
ber her.
Bonnie Schulze gave decades of
service to this district. First at Live Oak
Elementary (later Ed Franz), Kitty Hawk
Middle School and later at Judson High
School. She tragically passed away recently
of cancer. During her years in the district
she served as a nurse, but not just a nurse,
she was someone who students, staff and
even parents could talk to about almost
anything.
Ms. Schulze started the first ever
Project Graduation that offered a safe and
fun alternative event for graduates to cele-
brate their accomplishment. She was a
woman of faith that took that commitment
and raised her level of service to others to a
much higher level than most people
see. That's what made her stand out...that's
what makes people of impact.
She was honored by JISD and Jud-
son High School in a special ceremony that
formally named the school library after
her. The event included remarks by former
Judson High School Principal Eddie Pars-
ley, son Greg Patulea and daughter Debbie
Dickey. Also present was daughter Cindy
Patulea who formerly worked at Judson
High School as well.
The ceremonial ribbon was cut by Schulze/
Patulea/Dickey family members, JISD
Board Member Sonny Merrell and Superin-
tendent Dr. Willis Mackey. Leading up to
the ribbon cutting, Judson High School
Choir members sang the school alma mater
in the rotunda common area. The Judson
High School Orchestra performed several
classical pieces before the event and the
school's JROTC provided the color guard
for the pledge to the U.S. and Texas flags.
Thank you everyone for your con-
tribution and attendance to this wonderful
tribute and dedication.
