Demarvin Leal is a big reason the Judson Rockets have gone deep into the playoffs this year. He is an anchor on the defensive line and has caught the eye of many college recruiters. He was presented with the official Army All-American jersey in a special ceremony at the Performing Arts Center formally recognizing his selection. 

While he has already signed a national letter of intent to play next year at Texas A&M University, he will be on a big national stage in January when he plays in the Army All-American Bowl in the Alamodome.  The game will be January 5th.

Seats For Soldiers Included JISD Family

JISD military-connected students, students involved in the C.A.A.S. military connected peer support groups, and Woodlake Hills Wildcats Honorary Military Squad attended the “Seats for Soldiers & Heroes Day” game at the Alamodome. The University of Texas at San Antonio Offices of Military Affairs and Department of Athletics sponsored “Seats for Soldiers & Heroes Day”. Soldiers and their families were invited to enjoy the game and spend time with each other and other military families. The game honored JISD active duty, retired, wounded warriors, reservist, and civil service parents. UTSA lost to Florida International University, but it was still a lot of fun for everyone. A big thanks to JISD Department of Guidance & Counseling Director, Monica Garcia, JISD Military Family & College Readiness Specialist, Sylvia Greenwood, JISD Social Worker, Tamika James, UTSA Departments of Athletics and Military Affairs.

   

Patriot Debate Student Making Name For Herself

Congratulations to Emmy Henshaw! Emmy. She is a senior at Veterans Memorial High School, and she qualified for the Quarter Finals in Lincoln Douglas Debate at the 2018 Rattle Royal TFA Speech and Debate competition in San Marcos November 30 and December 1. She was 3 and 1 in the preliminary rounds before qualifying for the knockout tournament. This was the first time that Veterans has fielded a team at a TFA tournament, and Emmy is the first student from VMHS to win an award. We are so proud of her. Veterans took nineteen students to compete at the completion in many different speech, debate and theatre competitions.

Wagner Basketball Standout Signs To Go North

Jalen Jackson recently signed his National Letter of Intent to the University of North Texas to play basketball for the Eagles.  Jalen has been a 4-year starter and integral part of the basketball program every year.  He was part of the 2016-2017 State Finalist team when he was named to the All-Region team.  Jalen has been an all-district player for the T-Birds all four years.  He is a true competitor and will be missed at Wagner High School, but will be a valuable asset to the University of North Texas.  Jalen is pictured with his family and Coach Rodney Clark.
