Rising Star At Veterans Memorial

Veterans Memorial junior Sarah Raffel was recently selected as the recipient of the Rising Star award by the Assistance League of San Antonio. She was nominated by a former teacher based on her previous writing work. While she won with an essay she wrote for the contest, writing samples from her previous schools also helped in the selection process. She was surprised in one of her classes by Assistance League officials, Principal Greg Brauer, and Dr. Ball.  Congratulations! She will read a poem that she has written at a Gala at the Witte Museum in March.


Medals Abound For JISD Academic Decathlon Students

Judson ISD high school students did a wonderful job at this year's Texas Academic Decathlon. 10 students earned 22 medals. Congratulations! The Texas Academic Decathlon provides high school students a chance to experience rigorous academic competition through participation in team activities in a number of different subject matters. At the same time, the organization involves members of the business/industry community as active supporters to promote academic excellence. Through long term relationships, developed through joint participation, it all benefits the students and the community.

National Signing Day, Judson Rockets

Athletics is one way of continuing one's education after high school...many times on some great scholarships.  National Signing Day was exciting for Judson High School...especially for these students and their families. It's a chance to continue both their athletic and academic careers by making a commitment to take their skills to the college level. We congratulate these student-athletes in this big step.
