JISD AFJROTC Wing Parade & Awards Night

 

Both Judson and Wagner High Schools have a great tradition in the ROTC programs.  They are active and win numerous awards each year. Both ROTC programs participated in the Wing Parade at Rutledge Stadium and later the awards ceremony at the Performing Arts Center.  Close to 40 awards and scholarships were formally presented during the gathering at the PAC. We congratulate all these students on a successful year and continued support in years to come.

STEM Day 2016 - A Smashing Success!

Despite rain and thunderstorms, the 2016 STEM Day event at Northeast Lakeview College was a resounding success.  The event was a collaboration of Congressman Henry Cuellar, Judson ISD and Northeast Lakeview College and focused on engaging students in careers, programs and fields of study that emphasized Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Hundreds of people turned out for the event that featured dynamic demonstrations and experiments from some of the biggest names in technology.  And everyone was talking about the inspirational presentation by Captain Barrington Irving. He captivated the crowd as he recounted his experience of flying solo around the world and built a wonderful address of motivation from his story that everyone enjoyed.  A big thanks to Deborah Rice for helping organize the event along with Congressman Cuellar and his office and Northeast Lakeview College.  It just gets bigger and better each year.

Student Leaders Have Dr. Montoya's Ear

One of Dr. Montoya's favorite things to do is talk with students...whether it's a new idea, a challenge they are seeing daily on a campus or an achievement that's flown under the radar, he want's to hear about it.  Periodically, he invites student leaders at all the secondary campuses to hear what's on their mind.  This session he and the students talked about the different magnet programs that will be offered at Mackey High School as well as what the Early College District designation means to high school students and how it will work.  It was a good informative conversation.
