Board Recognitions 8-18-16

Board recognitions usually take a break during the summer time just because most everyone goes different directions during the break, but JISD Police Chief Teresa Ramon has been busy this summer. She was recently recognized by the Texas School Based Law Enforcement with a very prestigious honor.  Because of her impact here and beyond, at its recent state conference, the TxSBLE recently awarded her with a Lifetime Achievement Award. This is a pioneering award that recognizes law enforcement officers who have established and sustained efforts toward keeping schools safe and secure. The JISD Board of Trustees wanted to recognize Chief for this achievement.  Congratulations to her and the JISD Police Department.

JISD Board Members, Mayors Tour Patriot Campus

School cafeteria

The excitement continues to build as the day draws closer for Mackey High School to open.  Construction continues to roll on as the campus is more than 90% complete with it scheduled to start the next school year in August.  JISD Board members Jose Macias and Arnoldo Salinas, Live Oak Mayor Mary Dennis and Universal City Mayor John Williams along with a number of district personnel took a quick tour to see how much progress has been made. Classrooms, the school library, the cafeteria, and the athletic facilities are all coming together nicely. But there are still a number of pieces to the puzzle that will be put in place in the coming weeks.  Go Patriots!!

She is also a character in the play, “Cinderella.” As a National Elementary Honor Society member, Sarai participates in morning announcements and other activities for the school and community. Sarai is very self-motivating and naturally a great leader. She is able to help others, yet push herself to reach her potential. She is a great student to have in class and will, with no doubt, reach all her goals throughout her academic years in Judson.

Molly is an 8th grader at Judson Middle School. She is a member of the National Junior Honor Society, Varsity Orchestra and Varsity Choir, and made the Region Choir in October. She is in the TAG Program and was recently added to the Duke University Talent Search last year for her high scores on state testing. She's actually taken the ACT test and her high score is already enough for college admission.

Judson High School student, Scott Rogers began taking piano lessons at the age of two and has gone on to win numerous piano competitions. But along the way he began to develop his voice as well. In fact, he has been named to the Texas Music Educators Association's All-State Choir. Scott is a member of the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio as a percussionist and plays the piano with the Philharmonic Orchestra. He has been a member of the Judson Chorale and Cantate' since his freshman year. His Choir Director is Ms. Kay Sherrill.

Over the last several years the Wagner Wrestling Team has enjoyed some great success with state championships...well the tradition of state competition continues. Three student athletes placed at district and regionals and made it to state and did very well. Congratulations to Daniel Arau who is pictured above with Assistant Coach Robert Herron. Also congrats to Anthony Anderson and Barbara Trevino.
