Athletics are a great way to pay for college and Judson High School senior volleyball player Mykeeta Ussery signed a National Letter of Intent to play and study at Wentworth Military Academy and College. That's in Lexington, Missouri...home of the Dragons. We wish her the best of luck in all she does.
Congratulations to Wagner senior Nyjah Meadows who recently signed with Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas to play volleyball in the fall. We want to wish her the best of luck in her studies and her spikes! We are proud of you.
As a part of Paschall Elementary's effort to carry out the district's mission to prepare students for college and career, a number of students took a very motivating trip to see the college life. School counselor Ms. Hume works with groups of very motivated students every morning before school starts and during recess time to make this experience meaningful and get them thinking about their future. Students designed and decorated backpacks with the logos of their favorite colleges and icons of their favored areas of study. This was all leading up to a big field trip. The Paschall Elementary Tiger Team and Book Study Groups took a trip to the downtown UTSA campus. They posed questions to a panel in a lecture hall, participated in a scavenger hunt around campus and toured Cafe' College for an engaging seminar called "College 101" for elementary school students. How fun is that?!
Being a part of the Alamo Academy is an honor and a dynamic program partnering with the district's Career and Technology Education students. 16 incoming Wagner juniors were accepted into the program along with those students returning making a total of 23 for next year. These students attended the Acceptance Letter Reception and will be involved in one of the five academies in the Alamo Colleges. Those academies include Aerospace Engineering, Health Professions, Advanced Technology and Manufacturing, Information Technology and Security and Heavy Equipment. Being a part of this unique educational effort allows students to receive $12,000 in scholarships and up to 30 college credit hours. Those in the Health Professions Academy are automatically accepted into the Nursing program. Congratulations to them for this big step!
